A Trip To Oroville's Chinese Temple

A Trip to Oroville's Chinese Temple: A Learn-About Book on California's Historic Liet Sheng Kong

Many early Chinese immigrants came to California to mine for gold and build railroads. They built many temples and shrines in California.  Today, the Liet Sheng Kong Temple in Oroville is an important historical monument.

            This book offers children a visual "field trip visit" through Oroville's  Liet Sheng Kong Temple and Museum Complex.  Children will learn interesting information about the cultural beliefs and ways of life of the early Chinese immigrants such as the color red is the symbol of joy, happiness, and good luck, and the temple has no windows in order to keep out evil spirits, and also, door guardians protected entrances to mansions and city gates.

            Children will enjoy the illustrations of museum artifacts such as parade swords, sedan chair scenes, Chinese dolls and children's shoes with "cat eye" tips.  Most of all, this inter-active book engages children throughout its pages.  Especially fun is the do-and-learn activity on shadow  puppets, one of the most enchanting Chinese cultural treasurers for storytelling. 

FREE TEACH GUIDES ARE INCLUDED WITH AN ORDER OF 10 OR MORE BOOKS.

andrew makes a home for trixie

This book is based on a true story that happened during a California earthquake.  The story is presented in a factual way and is designed to help children understand what happens during an earthquake. It teaches preparedness and the necessity of following safety procedures.  The story acknowledges that during and after an earthquake both adults and children are afraid.  The story’s ending lets children know that there is recovery after a disaster.

 

The action-oriented drawings will help children identify with Andrew and the other children in the story and help them remember safety procedures.  This story can be read to children or read by young readers. Because the story, itself, is true and interesting, children will want to hear or read it many times thus reinforcing in their minds earthquake preparedness and safety.

 

The illustrations are designed to give additional information that can be used for discussion.  Also included at the end of the story is a Family Safety Check List which the authors compiled with the help of many disaster preparedness organizations.

    

Free Teacher Guides to help stimulate classroom discussion on this most important safety topic are included with every order of 10 books or more.
