Knowing and learning other countries' cultures should be very interesting especially for little children. It's never too early to introduce our little ones to different cultures of other countries, let them know how little children like them live in a far away place. Let your children take a peek into the way of life in other countries so they will appreciate and respect people of different colors.
As Summer Olympics in Beijing is fast approaching and the world is all eyes on China, Barefoot Books is excited to release the very first book in its Young Fiction line called "Little Leap Forward: A Boy in Beijing", a semi-autobiographical book that will surely inspire you to explore the culture of China. This book is sensitively written, a real-life story that focuses on growing up in Beijing in the 1960s, at the time of the Cultural Revolution. Little Leap Forward offers children an intimate and immediate account of a child’s experiences as Mao Tse Tung’s Great Leap Forward policy tightens its grip on China.
