Win the book, My China Travel Journal, by Laura Barta.

This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner–Katherine A!

Emma and Joe are curious about everything on their trip to China. My China Travel Journal tells the story of the fascinating, and sometimes quirky, people and places they encounter. Join them while they fly kites with Chinese friends, spot strange new vegetables in the market, and eat candied crab apples from a street vendor.
