    1. A rhyming story about the sights and foods at a colorful Chinatown market.Ages 3-8A "gai see", as I discovered when I found a glossary in the back of this book because I wanted to check that my contextual understanding of the first sentence was correct, is a street market where vendors sell their wares in stalls, from pushcarts, and in stores. This colorful picture book conveys the bustling atmosphere in a Chinatown market, and illustrates the many foods and accessories that can be found there a [...]


    2. Nice story for promoting international-mindedness. Walk with a child through Chinatown outdoor market to get a glimpse of Chinese traditions,food, and culture.


    3. Take a charming tour of Chinatown! What in the world could you possibly see at an oldgai see, just you and me on a warm and easy, slightly breezy springtime Saturday morning? In Cantonese,gai seemeans “street market, the lively place where vendors sell all their goods from open-air stalls, pushcarts, and stores. Join a curious little boy as he shops at the market with his family in every season and discovers many special treasures. From noodles in the spring to dragon fruit in the summer, from [...]


    4. Finally got a chance to listen to (and enjoy the images of) this beautiful story which captures Hong Kong street markets so beautifully - and I even got to hear it read by the author herself and learned more about the creative process and the inspiration for the book. Happy to have my own signed copy now and a copy on our library shelves. I have no doubt it will become a much requested book in our library.


    5. With simple, yet colorful illustrations, this book introduces the reader to Chinatown. The author utilizes a cheery rhyming style to lead us through the seasons and what can be found at a gai-see. Glossary included in the back.


    6. We loved the rhymes and the introduction of so many things Chinese taught through the change of seasons. Gai see is a street market in Cantonese. The short book introduces food like cheong-fun (wide noodles), dragon fruit and money packets. Great book to read for Chinese New Year.


    7. This book talks about all the things that the people can see in Chinatown. Personally, this book is very informative because it can help children to explore a new culture. Plus, the illustrations can easily engage the readers. I think this book can be ideal for ages from 7 to 10 years old.


    8. I have read several books by this author and I think this is my favorite. It's fun to read, introduces your kids to new things and makes you want to run out and try new things.


    9. This book covers many topics. It is a rhyming story about different seasons at a Gai See, or a street market. It has bright colors and nice pictures that are easy for kids in a group to see.


    10. A standard story about two siblings exploring the street market in Chinatown. Yangsook Choi's illustrations are distinctive.
