Best Books for Chinese New Year and Oriental Culture for Upper Elementary and Middle School Students

 Chinese New Year celebrates the culture of the Orient. What better way to explore oriental culture in your classroom than with literature? Here is a collection of children's books of oriental wisdom for parents, teachers and homeschoolers. Pearl S. Buck: a missionary to China and early winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Miss Buck writes with compassion and verve about her beloved China. "The House of Earth"," The Mother","The Big Wave and Other Gods" are just a few of the many tales that Pearl S. Buck has written for English speaking people about the ways of the Orient. Miss Buck's stories are written in the simplicity of Chinese language. Buck's books are just a few of the stories listed in this article for children. There are poetry collections, historical fiction, coming-of-age, fantasy and more. I've focused on kids in grades 3-6, but these books would work great for any age special needs student as read-alouds or independent readers. Best Books for Chinese New Year, Asia for Middle School
