    About this book


The series Graded Readers for Chinese Language Learners is composed of 50 books, divided into three subseries, namely folktales, literary stories and historical stories, corresponding to Levels 1-3 respectively. The rich and fun content and easy-to-understand language makes it easy for everyone, whether they are foreigners learning Chinese, children with parents of Chinese origin, ethnic minority students of the Chinese language, or even primary school students in China, to read this series. It enables the readers to gradually improve their Chinese reading skills and enhance their understanding of Chinese culture by reading and enjoying stories.
The “Folktales” subseries includes 10 stories, hence 10 books, adapted from folk legends, each book written in 20,000-30,000 Chinese characters. The titles of the 10 books are Hua Mulan, Lady White Snake, The Cow Herder and the Weaver Girl, A Golden Millet Dream, Chang’e Flying to the Moon, The Old Man under the Moon, The Butterfly Lovers, Nie Xiaoqian, Chen Shimei, and Beauty from the Painting.
In the book Lady White Snake, a man called Xu Xian saved a white snake in one of his former lives. Two thousand years had passed and the white snake cultivated itself into the form of a young lady and called herself Bai Suzhen. Bai Suzhen found Xu Xian in this life and they fell in love. To fight against the monk Fahai who tried every means to destroy her relation with Xu Xian, Bai Suzhen made a big mistake by drowning the Jinshan Temple. After giving birth to a son, she was put into prison under the Leifeng Pagoda.
