“he wept great big warm salt tears, and each tear was large enough to drown an entire village.“
“Seven Chinese brothers swallowing the ocean, Seven thousand years to sleep away the pain, She will return, she will return...“
I would use this book in my classroom to teach children about Chinese culture. The Seven Chinese Brothers is based on a Chinese folktale and contains references to the Han Dynasty. Each of the seven brothers in this story has a special power, and they all look alike.
This book uses “magic“ and supernatural powers to tell a cultural story of 7 brothers in China. It allows students to read about the cultural past of China, involving emperors and other prominent features. It demonstrates team work and selflessness. It has a focus on supporting others and was a good book.
This traditional story tells the story of 7 Chinese brothers with remarkable skills. With the rise of a powerful emperor who exploits the hard work of the townspeople at the great wall of China, they use these super natural powers to overcome him. Each brother supports and helps each other when they are in trouble.
