A puzzle, a work of art, and a collection of classic American songs, all in an innovative book by one of the world's foremost contemporary artists.
Every page of this book is filled with secret code. It seems like Chinese calligraphy, but it’s not. It seems like you can’t read it, but you can. Once the pieces of the puzzle start falling into place, you will understand it all. And some of it may even strike you as strangely familiar . . .
Twelve traditional American songs, such as "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and "Yankee Doodle," as well as five classic songs from Chinese culture, are written here in artist Xu Bing's unique "square word calligraphy," which uses one-block words made of English letters. From a distance, these pieces are beautiful but unintelligible art. Up close, they are a mystery just waiting to be solved—like the fine art version of "Magic Eye."

All of us make many, many choices each day. Each choice will result in something that will happen afterwards. If we “Stop” and “Think” before we act, we are much more likely to make better choices.
This book will help children learn about choices they make every day and their outcomes or consequences. It presents several common, real-life situations, each with a choice to be made. Children are encouraged to compare what will likely happen if they make a good choice, versus a bad choice. Children are told to “Stop” and “Think” about “What could happen?” with the different choices they could make.
After the scenarios, children are provided with some creative ways they can make more “good choices” and less “bad choices.” Also included are notes to the parent and educator containing insights about the rationale and importance of teaching children skills for making good choices.
