    Story wise, the book was just so so What I did think was great about the book is how the illustrator integrates Chinese characters into the illustrations in a way that makes the characters understandable I found that once I had read the book I could identify some of the characters on the last page ...

    This is the coolest book that I ve read in awhile The story itself a girl losing her pet dragon and going on an adventure to find him only facilitates the ingenious idea to introduce written Chinese characters through the illustrations This is one big, visual mnemonic device for remembering what the words that the characters represent I fully support this method, because it relates to the learning theory of environmental contextualization, and can be applicable for students with various lea This is the coolest book that I ve read in awhile The story itself a girl losing her pet dragon and going on an adventure to find him only facilitates the ingenious idea to introduce written Chinese characters through the illustrations This is one big, visual mnemonic device for remembering what the words that the characters represent I fully support this method, because it relates to the learning theory of environmental contextualization, and can be applicable for students with various lea...

    When my daughter was learning Chinese in high school, she used to have a character book in which she would write each character she had to learn that day over and over Each character, she would tell me, is like a picture of its meaning And when you read Christoph Niemann s cleverly written book The Pet Dragon, you can really see how true that it The story is simple a young girl, Lin, is given a pet baby dragon as a gift Lin and the dragon do everything together, but when the dragon shatter When my daughter was learning Chinese in high school, she used to have a character book in which she would write each character she had to learn that day over and over Each character, she would tell me, is like a picture of its meaning And when you read Christoph Niemann s cleverly written book The Pet Dragon, you can really see how true that it The story is simple a young girl, Lin, is given a pet baby dragon as a gift Lin and the dragon do everything together, but when the dragon shatters a vase, Lin s father insists he be put in a cage The next morning, the cage is empty and the dragon has left Lin looks everywhere for her friend in the city, in the country and finally, with the help of an old lady and some magic beans, in the sky T...

    The colors and forms of the illustrations are definitely extremely eye pleasing The subject matter Chinese characters words is definitely in high demand these days However, I find the story very forced where did that green witch pop into the story And a Pet Dragon is definitely NOT a very Chinese concept Dragons are not cute little creatures to have as friends I blame Disney s Mulan for this belittling of a powerful mythical being It is also odd that there is no reference whatsoever t The colors and forms of the illustrations are definitely extremely eye pleasing The subject matter Chinese characters words is definitely in high demand these days However, I find the story very forced where did that green witch pop into the story And a Pet Dragon is definitely NOT a very Chinese concept Dragons are not cute littl...

    I LOVE this picture book I love the concept which aligns perfectly with my own visual approach to the world and, I suspect, many children s also That of finding visual cues everywhere to help understand and learn things My 9 year old son loves the book as well and took great delight in re reading it when he saw I had it out from the library again The illustrations are delightful, work perfectly and have great style and design sense The story is simple and follows the fairytale tradition, I LOVE this picture book I love the concept which aligns perfectly with my own visual approach to the world and, I suspect, many children s also That of finding visual cues everywhere to help understand and learn things My 9 year old son loves the book as well and took great delight in re reading it when he s...

    Fantastic book design and illustration, but the story was convoluted and confusing and didn t match up very well to the clever premise of Chinese character interpretation I so wanted to give this five stars, too very cool concept.

  10. Jenny says:

    Creative I didn t necessarily love the story, but the usage of Chinese characters as part of the story to teach basic Chinese was pretty cool I don t know anything about Chinese so I have no idea how great it really is But my 3 year old loved that there was a dragon in it.

  11. The Library Lady says:

    This reminds me of the pedestrian tell and draw you often find in storytelling books The language is stilted and the plot disjointed.People with an interest in Chinese characters will find this useful But as a picture book, it falls flat.

  12. Laura says:

    Cute, imaginative, and I daresay very effective method for learning some Chinese characters.

  13. Nikki says:

    My daughter loves this book and it s an excellent way to teach Chinese symbols.

  14. Quin says:

    Pretty pictures, some chinese characters shown in the picture, but all in all, I m not too impressed The story depth was rather thin even for children books.
