Learn Chinese Culture textbook for children - Sanzi jing Dizigui Qianziwen Xiaojing 1 book and 1 CD

This book includes: Three Character Classic; Thousand-Character Essay; Dizigui; The Classic of Filial Piety

The San Zi Jing (Three Character Classic), written in the 13th century, is not one of the traditional six Confucian classics, but rather is a distillation of the essentials of Confucian thought expressed in a way suitable for teaching young children. Until the latter part of this century, it served as a child's first bit of formal education at home. It is written in couplets of three characters (syllables) for easy memorization.

The Qianziwen (Thousand-Character Essay), is another ancient text used to teach Chinese to school children. It really does contain exactly 1,000 characters of which no character is ever repeated. Because of this unique feature, it is also a very popular subject for calligraphers. The characters are arranged into 125 four-character couplets. In addition to being a tool for teaching reading and writing, the essay also incorporated basic facts that would be useful to children.

The Dizigui is the basis of Confucianism and emphasises the implementation of rules of etiquette. It enumerates the appropriate rules of etiquette which everyone should master, reiterating the importance of family. This course will teach your child the importance of filial piety and inculcate him/her with the right values so that he/she will grow into a virtuous person.

The Classic of Filial Piety, as published by the emperor Xuan in A.D. 722, with the headings then prefixed to the eighteen chapters. Subsequently, in the eleventh century, Si Ma Guang (A.D. 1009-1086), a famous statesman and historian, published what he thought was the more ancient text of the classic in twenty-two chapters, with "Explanations" by himself, without chapter numbering or headings. The differences between his text and that of the Tang emperor are insignificant.
