Brandon Makes Jiaozi: Traditional Chinese

Eugenia Chu

Mommy surprises Brandon with his grandma, Pópo (婆婆), and grandpa, Gōnggong (公公), when she picks him up from school one day. When they get home, the adventure begins! While Brandon and Pópo (婆婆) are making Chinese dumplings, called jiǎozi (餃子), Brandon makes a mess and he and Pópo (婆婆) have a good laugh! They chat and bond over the experience, and Brandon makes a big surprise which delights his whole family!

This adorable story includes some conversational Mandarin (in traditional Chinese characters plus Pinyin pronunciation) and is written the way a real Chinese grandmother and her Chinese-American grandson would speak with each other. It is a fun read for families and schools with children who are learning, or are interested in, Mandarin or Chinese culture.
