This unique series of photographic information books, told in the first person, accompanies children who have grown up away from their family's homeland, and are now visiting it for the first time. The unfamiliar food, clothing, and customs of another country are seen from a fresh, exciting perspective. With stunning photographs and a bright, child-friendly design, this informative, fun series is very relevant to today's world in which so many people have moved away from their original culture to live elsewhere. "Shan-Yi Goes to China": Arriving first on the island of Hong Kong, Shan-yi goes by train to Panyu in mainland China to see where her grandmother was born, visits her family's 700-year-old ancestral hall and embarks on a busy schedule of sightseeing, meeting relations, eating and shopping. From red bean pie to lunar calendars, from firecrackers to dragons, she learns about the Chinese way of life and returns home delighted with the land of her grandparents.
