does a really fun blog carnival every Thursday – read your child a story then accompany it with art!
My husband just got back from his 2 week business trip to China so this week my preschooler & I are learning about China.
Look What Came From China
Product Description

Describes many things, both familiar and unfamiliar, that originally came from China, including inventions, food, tools, animals, toys, games, musical instruments, fashion, medicine, holidays, and sports.

Our craft to go with the book was dragon paper lanterns
My son’s dragons he drew, he even said there was fire coming out of their mouths


  1. Oh, I love his dragon. And, I am so remembering this book for when we study Asia.

  2. Great project!

  3. What a fun book! It’s nice to give the kids exposure to other cultures that doesn’t all revolve around food. Love the little dragon he added.

  4. Very well illustrated dragon on that lantern. Good job!

  5. I think my daughter would love this book. Since she has learned to read, I often here her say, “wow, Mom, EVERYTHING is made in China!”

  6. I love the dragon drawings!

  7. I love that there is fire coming out of the dragons mouths. : ) Cute idea with the lanterns.

  8. What a great dragon!

  9. That is so neat that they are learning about the place where their dad was visiting. It must make it even more exciting for them :0)

    The book looks great and the lanterns are adorable. I love his dragon drawing.

    Thank you for linking up to stART!

  10. We also read this book for our studies of China and made a lantern. I first had to trick daughter into reading it, but she enjoyed it quite a bit. She was especially fascinated to learn that icecream is made in China.
