One young boy, Joey, and his magical pet dog, Tee.
One exciting and educational nighttime adventure to learn about China!
February 9, 2024: The Chinese New Year of the Dragon begins tomorrow – February 10 – and is the perfect occasion to share a very special “gift of China” with young children in your lives, or your customers with young children, by giving them the children’s picture book, Tee-Dog and The Magic Globe: China.
Through the story of a young boy named Joey, and his magical pet dog, Tee, Tee-Dog and The Magic Globe: China takes children on an exciting adventure to learn about China – including its geography, capital city of Beijing, famous sights (the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall) as well as the many everyday things used around the world that were first invented in China! The story also includes a spoken and written Chinese language lesson to inspire young children to learn and practice Chinese.
There is even a huge dragon on the book’s cover which makes Tee-Dog and The Magic Globe: China an even more appropriate gift to give children for the Year of the Dragon!
Since the book was published by The Brooklyn Writer’s Press in 2020, it has received a wide variety of accolades and a growing number of reviews by prominent China commentators and customers:
“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 takes children on a whirlwind visit to China to introduce the richness of its language and culture in one magical evening. Narrated in rhyme, and with child-friendly language and brilliant illustrations, the book will capture the imagination of young readers as well as the grown-ups who read with them.”
-Professor Claudia Ross – Chair – Department of Modern Languages and Chinese Program Coordinator, College of The Holy Cross; Past President of the Chinese Language Teachers Association (CLTA) USA.
“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 and 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 been “that far away.”
-Mark Rowswell (a.k.a. “Dashan” 大山) – National Media & Entertainment Celebrity in China; Canada – China Goodwill Ambassador.
