Father's Chinese Opera
By Rich Lo
38 pages
Age 3-6 years

The Chinese opera is anything but boring. Songs, acrobatics, acting, and costumes make the opera a truly spectacular show to behold. Spending a summer backstage at his father's Chinese opera, a young boy is instantly enamored with the performers and works hard to be a part of the show. Rehearsing the moves day and night (the names of some of the traditional acrobatic moves are mentioned) with the show's famous choreographer, the boy thinks he is soon ready to perform with the others. But the choreographer doesn't agree. In fact, he laughs at the boy when asked to join the acrobats. Upset, the boy goes home to sulk. What will he do next? Will he give up on his dream, or will he persevere and work his way up in the show?

This fascinating, heartfelt, and intriguing story draws on author Rich Lo's personal life, and features his own highly colorful and mesmerizing illustrations.   "Father's Chinese Opera" teaches children about hard work, patience, and the commitment needed to achieve an important goal, while introducing them to an important part of Chinese culture.
