Encounters Cross Time and Space, Let’s Read to Make a Difference!

On UN Chinese Language Day and World Book Day every year, WuKong initiates the Wukong World Reading Month to experience the beauty of reading and carry out reading charity programs with students globally.

In this year’s Global Reading Month, we have selected a variety of traditional cultural storybooks. We have launched engaging global reading sessions in countries such as the United States, France, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, and more, where we explore the fascinating world of reading together with children.

Go and experience the courage and responsibility in “Jingwei Filling the Sea,” and the humility and filial piety in “Kong Rong Giving up the Pears.”

Witness how Sun Wukong creates chaos in the heavens in “Journey to the West” and learns about his righteousness and kindness, as well as his unwavering spirit.

Step into the story of “Mr. Dongguo and the Wolf” and see how he resolves conflicts with the wolf, understanding the importance of kindness

During the reading sessions, the teacher leads the children in reading fascinating Chinese stories, learning from the wisdom of human civilization found in these literary classics. Children actively share their thoughts with the teacher:

“I think Sun Wukong possesses an unwavering spirit. I want to be fearless and relentlessly pursue my own dreams!”

“I also want to learn from Kong Rong in the future and do my best to take care of my beloved family!”

The teacher encourages and praises the children for their insights, fostering a positive and nurturing learning environment.

The underlying principles conveyed in the texts can provide nourishment and enrichment to children’s growth. WuKong World Reading Month aims to encourage children to develop good reading habits and appreciate the significance of reading. By immersing themselves in the world of books, children can broaden their horizons, enhance their knowledge, and cultivate their imagination. Reading not only offers entertainment but also stimulates critical thinking, empathy, and creativity. It allows children to explore different perspectives, learn from the experiences of others, and develop a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them.
