Teach your kids about PRC History!

H-PRC members might be interested in Sigrid Schmalzer's new children book about sustainable farming in China told through the story of scientist Pu Zhelong,  Moth and Wasp, Soil and Ocean: Remembering Chinese Scientist Pu Zhelong's Work for Sustainable Farming. It introduces kids to the experiences of scientists and peasants in 1970s China and offers a historical example of Chinese people working for environmentally sustainable farming.
