Little Green - A Memoir of Growing Up During the Chinese Cultural Revolution (Paperback, Reprint): Chun Yu Little Green - A Memoir of Growing Up During the Chinese Cultural Revolution (Paperback, Reprint)
Chun Yu
R184 R172 Discovery Miles 1 720 Save R12 (7%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In this stunning, lyrical memoir that includes a curriculum guide, author Chun Yu recalls the Chinese Cultural Revolution from the perspective of a ten-year-old. When Chun Yu was born in a small city in China, she was born into a country in revolution. The streets were filled with roaming Red Guards, the walls were covered with slogans, and reeducation meetings were held in all workplaces. Every family faced danger and humiliation, even the youngest children. Shortly after Chun's birth, her beloved father was sent to a peasant village in the countryside to be reeducated in the ways of Chairman Mao. Chun and her brother stayed behind with their mother, who taught in a country middle school where Mao's Little Red Book was a part of every child's education. Chun Yu's young life was witness to a country in turmoil, struggle, and revolution--the only life she knew. "True to a child's bewildered viewpoint and augmented by occasional, small black-and-white family photos" (Booklist), this memoir, complete with a curriculum guide, is a stunning account of a country in crisis and a testimony to the spirit of the individual-- no matter how young or how innocent.

Gross is back and viler than ever From the author of "Oh, Yuck " the perennial bestseller about science with over 610,000 copies in print, comes "OH, YIKES ," an illustrated encyclopedia of history's messiest, dumbest, grossest, wackiest, and weirdest moments.
If kids think pus and gas are fun, wait until they hear the lowdown on the real Dracula, samurai, gladiators, guillotines and vomitoriums, pirates, Vikings, witch trials, and the world's poxiest plagues. Impeccably researched, deliciously wry, and subversively educational (check out the toilet-paper timeline), "OH, YIKES " covers people, events, institutions, and really bad ideas, alphabetically from "April Fool's Day" to zany "Zoos." Here are the Aztecs, sacrificing 250,000 people a year for the gods--and for food. Fearsome Attila the Hun, scourge of the steppes whose spinning eyes terrified his friends and whose mastery of horses terrorized his enemies (how does someone so evil die? Nosebleed ). Saur, the 11th-century dog-king of Norway (and not too bad as kings go). Henry VIII and his marital problems, the story of the Abominable Snowman and the Loch Ness Monster, why sailors in the old days preferred eating in the dark (hint: you can't see what's crawling in your food), and the answer to the question, "How did knights in armor go to the bathroom?"
Topped off with hundreds of illustrations and photographs along with hands-on activities that bring the past to life, "OH, YIKES " puts the juice in history in a way that makes it irresistible.
