Everyday Life

Through Chinese Peasant Art

By Tricia Morrissey and Ding Sang Mak
Bilingual English/Chinese

Everyday Life introduces children to the vibrant world created by Shanghai’s Jinshan artists. From a watermelon harvest to an autumn festival to a child’s winter game, vivid, friendly peasant art brings everyday life in rural China into our lives. Simple, rhythmic poems, presented in English, Chinese and Pinyin, beautifully accent each painting.

Everyday Life’s colorful, bustling illustrations will capture a child’s imagination, while descriptive English-Chinese bilingual text invites English and Chinese readers to enjoy the sweetness of each page.
