Hu Wan and the Sleeping Dragon by Judy Young, illustrated by Jordi Solano
[spoiler alert] In the end, Hu Wan is rewarded for his kindness, empathy and humility by the emperor’s young son. He also has found a gift and additional connection with his Grandfather. Books that demonstrate these key elements of being a kind human rank high on my list. I look forward to more tales from Young and Solana.
This makes a great edition to our holiday book collection – celebrating Lunar / Chinese New Year is a big part of our family! Hu Wan’s lessons a great compliment.
