Editor's note: Everyone should read the classics but at different ages, as we get different understandings of them as we age. The four masterpieces of Chinese literature are classics, but are they really fit for children? China Daily readers share their opinions.


I think some Chinese classics like Li Bai and stories such as "Dream of the Red Mansions" are not suitable for little children, they are designed to educate adults.

Perhaps "Mulan" is the most appropriate though I know that some Chinese parents expose their own children to the explosive tales told by Louis Chan the gifted Kungfu genre writer.
