Review: Uncle Peter's Amazing Chinese Wedding
Uncle Peter's Amazing Chinese Wedding by Lenore Look
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Uncle Peter's Amazing Chinese Wedding is a good book to teach your child a little bit about Chinese wedding traditions. It might also help a young one get over his or her feelings of jealousy if they think that a relative is ignoring him or her in favor of a new spouse. The narrator of the book, a young girl, is very sad on the day of her favorite uncle's wedding, and feeling neglected and ignored. She is reluctantly dragged through the stages of her uncle's wedding, and describes them and explains how they would have been different a hundred years ago, or two hundred years ago. The illustrations are simple, colorful, and a bit busy. It almost seems as though the narrator might have drawn them to aid in telling her story. Recommended.
