Description

Ling, the narrator of Revolution Is Not a Dinner Party, can't imagine a different life than the comfortable one she's known, living with her physician parents in Wuhan, China. In this nonfiction companion to the popular novel, you'll explore what real life was like in 1970's China—from foods and traditions, to medicine and marketing. It covers historical elements, such as Mao's rise to power, the Red Guard, and Barefoot Doctors, as well as broader cultural topics, like Chinese food, Chinese New Year, and origami.

The Nonfiction Companion series takes popular, grade-appropriate fiction titles and provides a more in-depth understanding of them. What were ration booklets really like? How did barefoot doctors work? Did families really run away to work on farms? Students will love to read about the histories, author backgrounds, and real-life facts surrounding books they already know and love.
