"This collection pairs English-language nursery rhymes and songs with their counterparts from China. The book is organized into themes: Outside, Inside, Party, Play, and Night. Hickory Dickory Dock shares a spread with Little Mouse, a rhyme about a mouse that climbed a lamp to eat the oil and can't get down. The Chinese rhymes are presented in simplified characters, pinyin Romanization, and translated into English. Large, brightly colored illustrations feature a multiethnic cast of children and adults. Most spreads have additional information about Chinese culture and ask readers to find items in the art. This book works best for one-on-one reading or as a resource for educators and parents."—School Library Journal
