Book Description: There is a renewed interest in understanding traditional Chinese language and culture. The Three Character Classic: A Bilingual Reader of China's ABCs serves that purpose. Known as San Zi Jing in Chinese, it has been a literacy text since the 13th century. The Three Character Classic has stood the test of time and space through its rich content as well as its literary beauty in simplicity in style. Comparable to a pocket encyclopedia, the book overviews Chinese history and important historical works, illustrating the fundamentals of Confucianism while teaching the basics of math, sciences, music, and moral lessons. Readers will find pleasure in reading these stories, and the book serves as a key to opening more doors to the understanding of Chinese culture.

Book Description: The Three Character Classic, Trimetric Classic or Sanzijing is one of the Chinese classic texts. The work is not one of the traditional six Confucian classics, but rather the embodiment of Confucianism suitable for teaching young children. Until the latter part of the 1800s, it served as a child's first formal education at home. The text is written in triplets of characters for easy memorization. This English translation was completed by world-renowned sinologist Herbert Giles. In this edition, we use simplified Chinese instead of traditional Chinese.

Book Description: The Three Character Classic is perhaps the oldest textbook in the world that is still in use in schools today. First written in the late 13th century and updated several times since then, the book was the mainstay of primary school education in China. Times have changed dramatically in the past 700 years but the Three Character Classic remains relevant today. The book outlines in a mere 1,000 words all the academic knowledge that was considered important for students to learn in traditional China. It discusses morals, general knowledge, history, literature, philosophy and education. This edition, vividly illustrated by Chan Kok Sing, contains the original text in both Chinese characters and hanyu pinyin for children to read aloud. It has a modern English translation as well as cartoon illustrations and notes depicting the meaning of each verse. Young readers will get to learn much about China's history and even more importantly, various morals and good study habits that the Three Character Classic emphasises.
