Chinese Reading Club for Kids

Dear Parents,
  As suggested by many parents, Yuren Chinese School is proudly presenting “Chinese Reading Club” to our members as well as the broader Chinese community at Birmingham. The goal of the club is to offer our young readers some basic knowledge about Chinese history, geography and culture, thus promoting cultural exchanges between China and US.
  We are going to use the official reading books: Common Knowledge about Chinese History, Common Knowledge about Chinese Geography, and Common Knowledge about Chinese Culture. These books are written in both Chinese and English with colorful pictures and maps, which are very suitable for our bilingual young readers. For more information about the books, please visit http://www.hwjyw.com/textbook.shtml and e-version of books can be found and downloaded on the right side of the webpage.
  At the end of the spring semester, we will have a Chinese Common Knowledge Competition. All club members of age 5 and up will automatically be eligible to enter the competition. Non club members will need to pass a written test before entering the competition.
