Hello SDCA friends! I am very proud to share that my third novel published this month. Serpentine is a Junior Library Guild selection (select titles are chosen from over 5,000 submissions each year), and received a starred review from School Library Journal: “This coming-of-age story takes readers on a fantastical journey through friendship and Chinese mythology. YA fans will love Pon’s storytelling ability and the immersion into a world filled with love, danger, and fantasy.”
Serpentine is a Chinese inspired fantasy appropriate for kids ages 13 through to adults! There are not a lot of books published in the United States featuring Asian heroes, and it is something I’m passionate about writing. It is available on amazon for kindle or paperback: http://www.amazon.com/Serpentine-Cindy-Pon/dp/1942664338/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1429197302&sr=8-1
I am happy to sign copies for you. —Cindy Pon (Room Parent for Bilingual 6A)
孔子誕辰 & 教師節: 九月二十八日
Confucious Day & Teacher’s Day: Sept 28
在中國教育史上 ，孔子象徵著 「有教無類，因材施教」 的萬世師表典型 。以六藝傳授學 生三千多人，不論其階級、人品，凡是真心向學，他皆來者不拒、誨人不倦 。 春秋變局中，孔子力學濟世，曾為匡正社會而周遊列國，勸諫君王行道； 晚年，整理古代文獻，奠 定中華文化萬世不易的基石。民國二十八年教育部通令全國將孔子誕辰訂為教師節，以紀念至聖先師，並慰勞教師們經年的辛勞。
Confucius’ Birthday is celebrated on September 28 (lunar calendar), which is also Teacher’s Day. Confucius (September 28, 551–479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history. Confucius's principles had a basis in common Chinese tradition and belief. He championed strong family loyalty, ancestor worship, respect of elders by their children and of husbands by their wives. He also recommended family as a basis for ideal government. He espoused the well-known principle "Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself", the Silver Rule. Following the victory of Han over Chu after the collapse of Qin, Confucius's thoughts received official sanction and were further developed into a system known as Confucianism.
Mid-Autumn Festival: Sept 27
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese have celebrated the harvest during the autumn full moon since the Shang Dynasty (c. 16th to 10th century BCE). Making and sharing mooncakes is one of the hallmark traditions of this festival. The festival celebrates three fundamental concepts which are closely tied to one another:
- Gathering - such as family and friends coming together, or harvesting crops for the festival
- Thanksgiving - to give thanks for the harvest, or for harmonious unions
- Praying - asking for conceptual or material satisfaction, such as for babies, a spouse, beauty, longevity, or for a good future
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival everyone!
