Cang Jie, the Inventor of Chinese Characters: A Story in English and Chinese

Age range 3 to 8In ancient times (circa 2500 B.C) under the reign of Yellow Emperor, people kept
records by piling stones and tying knots. One day, Cang Jie, a historical official
who kept records for Yellow Emperor, unexpectedly made a big mistake. Feeling
very guilty over his error, he became determined to create a better way to keep
records. He went back to his hometown and thought the problem over for many
days and nights. Eventually, he began to observe the movement of the sun,
moon, stars, mountains, rivers, lakes, and seas, as well as the birds and
animals. At the same time, he traveled around collecting signs created by
fishermen, farmers, hunters, and soldiers. In the end, he created the Chinese
characters still widely used today.
