Word of the Day-Zhong Guo (China)

Posted: Saturday, May 7, 2011 By Ni Hao Books

The Words of the Day for today is 中国, zhōng guó (China). 中 means middle, and 国 means country. Chinese have always thought they live in the Middle Kingdom, the center of the world.

母亲节, mǔ qīn jié (Mother's day) is coming up, so my 6 year old son had to do a project for school related to me, the mom. He has to find out a few things about me. One of the question is my favorite spot of vacationing. I asked him first and see what he thought, thinking he would say Yosemite, since I talk about it all the time. To my surprise, he said 中国, in Mandarin and all. I then realized I do talk about taking him to China even more than Yosemite. It's more than my favorite vacation spot, it's my roots, my mother-land. I hope my kids will come to appreciate their roots, and find 中国 to be their favorite vacation spot, too.

母亲节快乐,(mǔ qīn jié kuài le) Happy Mother's Day!
