Fa Mulan: The Story of a Woman Warrior - Robert D. San Souci, Jean Tseng, Mou-Sien Tseng My obsessed-with-all-things-Chinese niece really enjoyed this Chinese legend. It's pretty tough to beat a story that feeds her obsession and shows a strong female in a non-traditional role.

There were lots of words and concepts in this story that were new to my niece. She's in second grade, and while I certainly don't mind explaining meanings to her, I think this book might have been aimed at slightly older kids. I don't think this book is going to appeal to huge masses of children, but we liked it.
