Happy Lunar New Year!

Shu Rui’s house is not far. There are no sidewalks, but the streets are wide. They’re filled with people because everyone comes home for the fifteen-day celebration of Chinese New Year. It’s The Year of the Tiger, 1998.

I was born in 1989, The Year of the Snake. Everyone says that’s why I talk so much. Grandma always tells me,

Child, you were born under a sign of wisdom. Remember, wisdom is attained by three methods: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the bitterest.

The Baiji

“Remember, wisdom is attained by three methods: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the bitterest.”
A story of friendship and sorrow, The Baiji involves young Ai Bao and her best friend in the whole big wide world Shu Rui- a girl with a beautiful smile and a weak heart. During the Spring Festival, the girls venture on a ferry ride over the Yangtze River, hoping to catch a glimpse of Ai Bao’s favorite animal, an endangered species of dolphin called the baiji. Will Ai Bao see the rare dolphin or is the baiji gone forever?

-The Baiji by D. Marie Prokop

 


A Review!

Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers’ Favorite

“The Baiji by D. Marie Prokop is a short children’s story about the culture of China, the environment that the Chinese people live in, particularly along the Yangtze River, and a friendship found and lost.

I love how D. Marie Prokop is so engaged in the education process for children that not only are questions asked for comprehension, but immediately the reader is given the pronunciations of Chinese words associated with reading The Baiji. If you want your child to learn about other cultures, begin with The Baiji by D. Marie Prokop.”
