Books set in China/Chinese families with patterned/repeated language?

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by CloakandWings, Dec 13, 2011.

  1. Does anyone know of such a book?
    We are doing a topic on China and need it to fit with the literacy 'stories from a range of cultures' unit. The books used are supposed to have patterned or repeated language. Just wondering if anyone can help with book suggestions?
    Thanks, C x

    Don't know if you'll be able to get hold of it very easily, but there's a story called, "Tikki Tikki Tembo" that will fit the bill exactly. It was read to me as a child, and I have just read it to my son for the first time this evening. I can't tell you the Author's name as the book is in his room and he's sleeping, but I'll get back to you with it if you like!

    It's sad, in a way, that we try to make thee utterly unnatural connectrions. We might wend up with a worse story and no better introduction to patterned or repeated language. If I were doing a topic on China, I would choose the best stories I could find and relegate the patterned stuff to somewhere else. Lovely though topic-planning can be, this is one of its main drawbacks.

    EEK! I missed the edit time limit. and was typing fast because I was cooking. [​IMG]
     
  8. I have a traditional tale called The Seven Chinese Brothers.It's a bit sophisticated for the youngest in EY but there is a familiar thread running through , the repetitive noise that the Emperor makes (I think). I was read this at primary school and have loved it ever since.
