Grace Lin's Books: Celebrating Chinese-American Culture!

The cost of 10 books by Grace Lin, including The Year of the Dog, Robert's Snow, and Dim Sum for Everyone, purchased from Barnes and Noble, is $212, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Hello! I would love to obtain books by Grace Lin for my classroom. Ms. Lin writes and illustrates vibrant, informative books, many of which feature Chinese-American children. These books have themes relating to Chinese-American culture. My school is predominately Asian, and it is so important that the children see themselves represented in the books they read. I have a few Grace Lin books now. The children are so proud when they can recognize and share an item or theme in these books. I plan to use Grace Lin's books as a jumping off point for a unit on Chinese-American and Chinese culture. I teach this unit every year, and it is a favorite with the kids. The children learn Chinese calligraphy. They also make fans, lanterns, dragon puppets, and scroll paintings. We even have a dim sum lunch. The unit ends with a big celebration for Chinese New Year! Grace Lin's books would be perfect to support these projects! Thank you for reading this proposal! My children mean the world to me. You would love them too!
