In the book The Analects of Confucius for Children, Confucius, the Chinese philosopher and politician during the Spring and Autumn Period (770BC-476 BC), is depicted as a wise elderly man, and The Analects of Confucius is interpreted through the lens of a child's daily life.

Without dull and obscure words or mechanical, rigid commentary, the book features illustrations of Confucius and his 72 disciples in a modern style, which makes the figures in The Analects of Confucius vivid and helps readers explore their personalities. It also reproduces historical scenes in which Confucius and his disciples reveal their thoughts and characters.

The Analects of Confucius for Children takes the form of a dialogue between father and child that facilitates similar communication between the fathers and children. In addition, in this book, the full text of The Analects of Confucius is all marked with phonetic symbols, which helps children read.

Chen Xiaoyun, author of the book, graduated from the Chinese Department of Fudan University in 1984, and then he worked at the Shanghai Art Institute. In 1995, he entered the advertising and branding consulting industry and offered services to many domestic and overseas brands and government projects.

With the experience of both studying the classics for over 30 years and educating his own child, Chen created a new way to interpret the classics for children. He explains the classics sentence by sentence to help children understand the content. In addition, he connects the classics with the modern life and the challenges that the parents may face when their children grow up, enabling the classics to guide their lives.

Chen's main works include: Where Are We Going and the series of the dialogue book — Teaching Daughter to Learn The Analects of Confucius and Teaching Son to Learn Master Sun's Art of War.
