Although Ba Jin’s fairy tales are written in ancient times, they all reflect reality.

“Changsheng Tower” was written in the winter of 1934. Pakistan described a violent emperor in it. If he wants to live forever, he will always be a blessing, and use force to drive the people to build a 22 -storey longevity tower for him. “We paid a huge sacrifice, built a tower for the emperor in a short time, and the tower was filled with strange treasures that were searched from various places. However, when the emperor boarded the highest level of the tower, the tower collapsed, and the Longsheng Tower became the grave of the emperor.

“Changsheng Tower” tells the principle of simple and just just as a fairy tales:

Any tyrannical and cruel rule will be destined to fail

Essence In “Long Life Tower”, the emperor seemed to be high and omnipotent, but aging and death could not make him exception; the “pariah” seemed to be very weak and slavered, but their bitter singing could make the emperor terrifying. The Changsheng Tower eventually collapsed because as what the story said: “

The platform of the sand on the sand has always been unstable

Stimulate small readers to pursue truth, goodness, beauty, and teach children to be brave, kind and just


The concept of clever charm is long

Unique narrative perspective is suitable for parent -child reading

It is worth mentioning that the idea of ​​”Longevity Tower” is very clever,

Through the dialogue between my father and son, tell the story

“There was an emperor in the past,” his father always started telling stories like this.


“Emperor, you always say that emperor, what exactly is the emperor?” Sometimes I couldn’t help asking him like this, because I have never seen such things.


“The emperor was the monster sitting in the palace all day!” The father thought about it for a while before answering me like this, so he continued to tell the story.

The father and son in the story echo the parents who read the story in real life.

Feel moral power and humanistic care.
