Reviews - What do customers think about Colors of China (Colors of the World)?
Orange is incorrect Apr 14, 2007
I liked this children's book except noticed the Chinese word they used for orange is actually a word that represents a rust or blood-red color, not orange!
Aside from this inaccuracy, it's a pretty good book, although I prefer hardcover for kids' books for durability.
Not your average book to help learn colors Aug 24, 2004
What I like about this book is that not only are you learning about how each plays an important part of the Chinese. The book includes the Chinese character for each color as well pronouncation. I want my daughter to know all about her Chinese roots and this is a terrific book not only for helping her learn her colors, but also learning about China.
A really informative book! Dec 28, 2001
I can't wait to use this book during Chinese New Year with my ESOL class! The kids will love it!
