Stories of Childhood in the History of the People's Republic of China: 1949-2019 is a special gift to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

A total of 20 writers of children's literature born from 1935 to 2000 were invited to recall unusual memories from their childhood.

Stories in the book include those about a nursery rhyme, a stage show, a mysterious gift, delicacies and pigeons at the plaza, which show the writers' nostalgia for their childhoods, their gratitude to their hometowns, as well as their thoughts about growth and longings for the future. They also record the country's changes and transformation in 70 years through children's eyes.

The past 70 years witnessed how the motherland rose step by step from sufferings to becoming rich and strong, leaving us many touching stories. Nowadays, Chinese children can snuggle up happily with their parents and receive education in spacious and bright classrooms.

No matter how times change, we should forget neither the history nor the pain. The great Chinese people should bear in mind the misery they have suffered to maintain their awareness of tribulation, work hard, catch up bravely, and move towards a greater future.

All the writers picked out their works that are interesting, thoughtful, full of dreams, and inspirational for the collection.

While reading the book, children can learn the growing strength of the motherland, the happiness of the peaceful time, the great difference between the living environment of today and that of the writers of the past, and the growth of the writers in such an unfavorable environment, which is an inspiration for today's children.

The collection of stories not only bears more practical significance, but also can realize the original intention of the compiler: let the young become bright, energetic, full of dreams, ambitious and hard-working.

"As long as you work hard, as long as you move towards your dream, there will always be a voice from your childhood, a voice full of sunshine, and a voice of power," said Chen Yanling, an executive editor of the book.
