Emperor Yan had a daughter called Nü Wa, who was swallowed by the merciless ocean when she went out to sea. Jingwei hated the ocean for taking her life. Her soul turned into a little bird. She vowed to fill up the ocean, so she took small pieces of stone or small branches and threw them into the sea without stopping. Jingwei continued her actions to fill up the ocean. Even today, we can still see the little "Jingwei bird" continue its tireless work throwing stones and branches into the sea. This series is four color printing. The beautiful pictures and simple words make this series prefect for Chinese and overseas children's reading.(精卫填海:炎帝的小女儿精卫在一次出海玩耍时遭遇了暴风雨,被夺去了生命。精卫愤恨大海的无情,于是变成了一只小鸟,不辞劳苦地每天衔来石头草枝,誓要把大海填平。日子一天天过去,她的行为看上去毫无效果,然而精卫从不放弃,至今依然在为着这个目标努力不懈。四色印刷,图画优美,文字简明流畅,适合7-14岁的中外少年儿童阅读。)
