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.
