Book review

By reading ancient Chinese myths in a fun story setting, kids will learn the meanings behind some of China's most famous idioms.

Chinese language has a very special category of Chinese idioms called chengyu, a unique style of idiom always told in four characters. Every idiom has a fascinating story behind it, sometimes drawn from history, and other times told as a parable. With great illustrations and characters, this full-color book will be perfect for your child's bedtime stories.

Chinese stories include:

  • Buying the Casket but Returning the Pearl
  • Drawing a Snake and Adding Feet to It
  • Grinding an Iron Rod into a Needle
  • Being There Just to Make Up the Numbers
  • One's Spear Against One's Own Shield
  • The Snipe and the Clam in a Deadlock
  • Playing the Lute to a Cow
