New San Cai Bilingual Magazine
In every culture, there are stories that people use to define themselves and to teach their children. These stories shape each culture by helping to describe and identify right and wrong, and what it means to be an honorable and trustworthy person.
This is especially true of Chinese culture, which dates back more than 5000 years. This rich culture has many stories that expand upon and detail the various qualities and traits that society looks to cultivate in its people. Because of the slight differences in the way these traits are taught, often when interacting with other cultures, especially Western cultures, these variances can create gaps in communication and understanding between people. New San Cai writes in a way that helps both Westerners and Easterners understand and appreciate the other’s culture.
All of the stories are told in both Chinese and English. To help those who are learning Chinese, pinyin is included above the Chinese characters to aid in pronunciation. The stories are presented in a way that children, as well as adults, will find engaging and entertaining. The pictures not only help bring the stories to life, but also give the reader an appreciation of traditional Chinese art.
In addition to the traditional history legends, the readers are introduced to Chinese poems, folk tales and classic western stories.
