BORN NAUGHTY My Childhood in China

by | Read by Jin Wang

Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Author/narrator Jin Wang introduces young listeners to the pleasures and challenges of life in the tiny village where she lived in the 1980s. Nan Ba Zi in Inner Mongolia, China, was so remote and dry that families took turns fetching water from the nearest town with a functioning well. Wang's warmly evocative narration highlights her memories of a childhood spent hunting mushrooms and climbing trees despite her mother's constant worry over the state of her clothes. With obvious affection Wang thoughtfully recounts both the beauty of the world around her and the tremendous amount of hard work required to live in the harsh landscape. Her mischievous and fun-loving nature is evident, especially when she emphasizes her own remembered justifications for being just a little bit naughty.
