What modern boy or girl wouldn't want to be called "Precious Child," as parents in ancient China referred to their children? Or wear a beautiful silk brocade jacket, as wealthy youngsters did? Or nibble on a crunchy roasted cricket? This book explores every aspect of life for Chinese children "way back when," from distinctive toys like a live "pet" dragonfly to hand-made lesson books to shopping at the exciting markets or strolling down the Silk Road in search of treasures. Illustrations, detailed historical background, and a glossary bring this time to life for young readers.
