This value pack contains 3 titles: The Three Character Classic, The Classic of Filial Piety, and The Student's Code of Conduct.
The Three Character Classic is perhaps the oldest textbook in the world that is still in use in schools today. First written in the late 13th century and updated several times since then, the book is an enduring mainstay of primary school education in China.
The Xiao Jing or The Classic of Filial Piety is a Confucian classic on filial piety. It teaches how one should behave towards a senior such as a parent, elder sibling, or ruler. The text consists of a dialogue between Confucius and his disciple, Zeng Zi, whose students compiled the treatise around 400 BC.
Di Zi Gui, or The Student's Code of Conduct, has its origins from this line in the Analects of Confucius, "A true disciple is filial; has fraternal love; is vigilant and trustworthy; cares for the community; seeks the company of the virtuous and pursues knowledge." Long regarded as an essential text for moral instruction, this classic serves as one of the most widely used texts in educating generations of young Chinese. Its wisdom remains relevant and stands tall as a beacon in a sea of relentless change in today's world.
With lively illustrations depicting ancient and modern day contexts, these three books attest to the insights and practicality contained within these classical texts. A heartwarming and lively read that educates on the essentials of all human relationships!
