Picture books for everyone

Dragon Dancer by Joyce Chng

Picture books are a great way to experience the world through another person's perspective, to better understand some part of another culture. Dragon Dancer deosn't present us with a linear story. Instead we have more of a stream of consciousness. It's impressions, thoughts, motivations. It's an entire experience rather than a story. This makes it less of a selection for very young children but a great choice for elementary school We learn about the cultural motivations and implications of a fairly well known tradition.
