Kai Ming is a Chinese boy who lives on a junk anchored near the island of Hong Kong. This in itself captures the child imagination. Here in an easy reading text, one goes with Kai Ming to the city, shops with him, works with him, sails with him. The routine of a colorful life and the sensations which accompany it for the boy become very real in simple, visual language. There's enough of lively flavor to meet the demands of even the reluctant beginning reader. Recommended as an excellent supplement for school and classroom libraries.
