Book Review - This is the Greatest Place!: A Palace Inspired by the World of Small Animals
About the Book
Rabbit is eating breakfast with his friends Baby Squirrel, Young Porcupine, and Little Brother Panda when an unexpected visitor arrives. He is a master builder, searching for inspiration to design a great palace for the Emperor of China. Together, Uncle Builder and the little animals explore how nature supplies us with the wonders that enrich our lives.
Created by internationally renowned children's book artists Brian Tse and Alice Mak, this book teaches children about Chinese architecture, how nature's influence can be seen around us, and how people and animals can live together in harmony. The illustrations capture both the majesty of the natural world and the Forbidden City and are enhanced by interactive components for readers, including a gatefold spread and lift-flaps.
My Take on the Book
This was a beautiful story. I have never been to the Forbidden City, but this story makes me even more interested in visiting it someday. This story brings together Chinese proverb and tells the story of the building of this amazing city. I read it to my daughter and she loved how the story was told by animals in a fun and interactive way. The story teaches while entertains and was fun for the whole family!
