For centuries, children have been gleaning wisdom hidden amidst wonderful stories told to them by their parents and grandparents. Here are eight more favorite children’s stories from China, selected because they do just that–present “pearls of wisdom” in a winsome and intriguing story. Whether it’s the ingenious problem-solving exhibited by Sun Tze in “Sun Tze and the Chariot Race,” the unorthodox crime-busting of Mayor Chen in “The Donut Boy,” or the depiction of vanity and the discovery of love in “The Queen of the Ball,” each tale provides true enjoyment for any generation. “Treasure Chests” follow every story to help readers further explore the “gems of truth” embedded in the tale, and encourage further discussion among parents and children. Spare, brush-stroke style black and white illustrations add interest and spark the imagination for each story. This is the second volume from the father-daughter team of Dr. Robert C.K. Lee and Doreen Lee Ong, continuing their own family tradition of passing down stories that provide a legacy of wisdom, Chinese heritage, and lessons of virtue and values.
