Formatted Abstract/Summary Cicada’s singing is a story between a little girl and an elderly lady. The little girl is cute and lovely while the elderly lady is kind and rustic. The care and love between them are touching. The story develops with a strong flavour of traditional Chinese culture.

By reading the story, children can develop empathy for the less fortunate. It is also our hope that children whose first language is English can learn some authentic Chinese and Pinyin (the Romanization system for Standard Mandarin Chinese). Children whose first language is Chinese can learn some good English.

这是一个讲述关爱的故事。在一个几乎被人遗忘的角落里刻画了两个人物,一个年幼的小女孩,一个年迈的老奶奶,一个天真可爱,一个纯朴善良,她们之间的那份关爱十分真实、感人,同时故事里充满了浓厚的中国传统文化气息。

通过阅读,孩子们有望从中学到一些人所应该具有的同情心。同时,我们也期待以英文为母语的孩子们通过阅读,学习到正宗的汉语和汉语拼音;而以中文为母语的孩子能学习到正宗的英语。
