    A fictional tale about a practice and business that is over 1000 years old in China selling orange ants I liked the importance of family in this book I liked the watercolor pictures I got over the Anglicized parts of the story But perhaps that would make this book easily accepted and understood in a story time The story being as different as it is might also help But I still worry that it would be a bit slow for the kids.
