This week’s read-aloud is The Cable Car and the Dragon by Herb Caen. The story explores San Francisco and Chinatown from the perspective of a cable car and a Chinese dragon. It has lots of good information about the city and demonstrates (rather than preaches) cultural appreciation.
"When the city is all covered with fog, it's like living inside a great gray pearl." This quote from the book reminds me of the poem Fog by Carl Sandburg.
Fog The fog comes on little cat feet.
It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.
