A national parent-child reading event, themed with "reviewing the century-old glorious history and passing down the revolutionary legacy," was held by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) on April 18 in Beijing's Fengtai District in the run-up to the 26th World Book Day which will fall on April 23.
Shen Yueyue, President of the ACWF, and Huang Xiaowei, Secretary of the Leading Party Members' Group and Vice-President and First Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, presented books on the theme of revolutionary history to family representatives and conferred flags on representatives of women volunteers' teams of parent-child reading.

During the event, over 100 kinds of books on the theme of revolutionary history were recommended to the participating families. Some classic poems and excerpts from books on the theme of revolutionary history were recited at the event.
The event was held in tandem with others occurring in cities and places renowned for rich revolutionary heritage, including Shanghai where the first CPC National Congress was held in 1921, and the Jinggang Mountains, known as the "cradle of the Chinese revolution," in East China's Jiangxi Province.
The ACWF called on women's federations at all levels around the country to closely integrate the parent-child reading activity with their services to the people, give play to the role of parent-child reading bases and women volunteers, and provide parent-child reading guidance for families in urban and rural communities.

After the event, Shen visited the Museum of the War of Chinese People's Resistance against Japanese Aggression with the children and their parents.
Shen stressed promoting the great spirit of resisting aggression bred during the war, reflecting on the past, recalling the revolutionary martyrs, cherishing peace and creating the future, as well as working tirelessly to build China into a great modern socialist country and realizing the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.
This year's national parent-child reading event, which focuses on study and education related to the history of the CPC, is a good opportunity for celebrating the Party's centenary. The event will recommend 100 books suitable for parent-child reading, publicize the stories of 100 people's heroes, release 100 short videos and promote 100 activity cases to guide families to study and carry forward traditions from revolutionary times.
The national parent-child reading activity, initiated by the ACWF in 2016, has been recognized by all walks of life and families, and plays an active role in spreading the concept of scientific family education, cultivating children's good reading habits, establishing a new style of family civilization, and developing and applying core socialist values.
Cai Shumin, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF also attended the event.
