Chin Yu Min and the Ginger Cat

This year for the A to Z Challenge my theme is Children's Books Around the World. Each book either has a specific setting around the world or is about a world culture.

I've spent this year studying geography - countries and cultures - with the girls. One of the things I love about homeschooling is finding new books to read with my small people, especially ones that go along with what we're studying.

C is for Chin Yu Min and the Ginger Cat by Jennifer Armstrong
This book is set in Old China. Chin Yu Min is a snooty, frivolous old woman who has to change her ways when her precious cat goes missing.

This is a picture book great for children in preschool to grade 2.
