A nice write-up of The Red Piano from the Victorian Department of Education and Early Learning’s Languages and Multicultural Education Resource Centre:
This beautiful and inspiring book chronicles the experiences of a young girl growing up during China’s Cultural Revolution. This moving and superbly illustrated book tells a tale of bravery and perseverance as a young girl refuses to let go of her dream at a time when forms of expression are forbidden.
The Centre has teachers’ notes for the book. Our own teachers’ notes for the book can be downloaded free here.
