If you’re a World Thinking Day purist, you’re probably thinking: China isn’t part of the World Association of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting.
But just because China is not a part of WAGGGS, I don’t think we should exclude learning about this country for World Thinking Day. Why not celebrate Hong Kong, or that U.S. Girl Scouts are overseas do live in China?
Check out these age-appropriate books on Amazon to learn more about life in China:
Read Welcome to China
China: Land of the Emperor’s Great Wall: A Nonfiction Companion to Magic Tree House #14: Day of the Dragon King

I am a huge believer in eating more authentic Chinese recipes, rather than the Americanized versions. If you’re in a pinch, try out some of my family’s favorites found here, make egg rolls, or peruse some of these Chinese cookbooks:
