"Get ready says Tee, grab your coat, wash your face,
We're taking a trip to a wonderful place.
We're going to China it's far, not near,
We'll cross a great ocean to get there from here-
The Pacific Ocean that's deep and wide,
China we'll find on the very far side.
If we went there by plane it would take a whole day,
Pick me up and we'll go there a much faster way!"
Thus begins Joey and Tee's overnight adventure in China during which Joey learns about China's geography, size of population, the capital city of Beijing, famous sites including Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City, The Great Wall; how to speak and write Chinese, and China's heritage of invention.
Written in rhythm and rhyme with rich accompanying illustrations, Tee-Dog and the Magic Globe : China is a fun and memorable introduction for early readers to China - one of the oldest, largest, and most influential countries in the world!
"What a fun and mesmerizing introduction Saul Gitlin has penned for young children to learn about China! While Western adults need to learn more about China's culture and history as the Middle Kingdom gains more influence on the global community, Tee-Dog and The Magic Globe : China is the perfect book to launch children on their own journeys to understanding the country that will impact the whole world in a myriad of ways from culture to trade in the coming century. I highly recommend this book!"

“Tee-Dog and The Magic Globe : China is a magical and entertaining first introduction to China for English-speaking children, with a practical side. Young readers are introduced to a broad range of information about the country’s culture & geography and offered a first lesson in Mandarin. We learn that it’s not that difficult to learn to speak Chinese, and with China’s heritage of invention bringing us things like paper and umbrellas, maybe the country has never really been that far away."
