This is a fun story with illustrations that include chinese characters. Lin has a pet dragon who disappears. As Lin searches for her dragon, she meets a witch who helps her find her friend.

This is a quick and fun story for first and second graders. I used a document camera to show the pictures so that students could see the characters and illustrations. We compared the characters (tree, woods, forest) and did air drawing. Fun! The final picture includes all of the characters from the story and students enjoyed telling how they remember what each character meant.
