Have you read the charming memoir, Confessions of a Counterfeit Farmgirl? It’s been years, but stuck with me, and I highly recommend it– a humorous Uppity-New-Yorker-abandons-city-life-and-embarks-upon-the-family-farm tale, which accidentally convinces the reader to follow suite though attempting to dissuade in jest. Good stuff.

As an aside, my dear friend at Africa to America shared a great list of resources with which to introduce your child to Chinese culture, this week. It’s a goodie, and I’m not just saying that because a) she’s a bestie, and b) she mentioned me/us… it’s really a great list and I’ll certainly be adding to our own library from her suggestions.
