A DAY IN THE LIFE OF CHINA. Playing, exercising, resting under a lotus tree: the things happening in an ordinary park on an ordinary morning. Early morning, and a community is coming to life. Children are playing, an artist is painting, people are exercising and meditating. Each page in this lovely picure book presents a snap-shot, and a final foldout spread collects them all to give a panorama of daily life in China. Hu yong Yi's paintings are saturated with color and rich in life and feeling.
