三字经》是中国传统文化的一篇代表作,世界通俗文学典范,从中可以体会到古代中国人的思想观念和生活习性。从现代社会的角度看,文中有些说法不尽合理,也不多准确,甚至有些过时,但是它的教育作用和文化价值仍然很高。这本中英文对照的《三字经》,把中国古代的儿童启蒙名著介绍给世界各国读者,是做了件很有意义的事。用中国年画名作与之相配,更是相得益彰。
年画是中国民间艺术的一个重要品种,因以过年时制作和张挂而得名。年画的内容多为生活故事、神话传说、历史故事、戏曲故事等等,其内涵则是祈盼吉祥平安、扬善抑恶、镇妖辟邪,反映了普通百性的精神追求。中国年画的著名产地有天津杨柳青、河北武强、河南朱仙镇、山东潍坊、陕西凤翔、山西临汾、四川绵竹、苏州桃花坞、广东佛山等。虽然各地年画的风格各有特点,但又都具有形象夸张、色彩鲜艳、喜庆欢快的共性,深受广大群众的喜爱。
