How we came up with the story “GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY! 快去外面玩!”

Dr. Woo started writing this story,  “GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY! 快去外面玩!”  because she saw so many kids (including her own – sometimes) choosing to stay indoors rather than going out to play. Yet, child development experts have shown how this decrease in outside play time negatively affects children’s moods, attention, and even academic performance. Going outside to play is just really really important for healthy development!

In this story, Mama Bao is urging her son, Baozi, to step away from his electronic devices and go outside to play. However, Baozi, has many hilarious excuses. Until something happens….

While this is a great story with an important message, like all Dim Sum Warriors stories, it is hilarious and a delightful read, providing an excellent talking point between parents and children about going outside to play. Definitely not preachy! It also has an important answer for parents about how to motivate children – based on Dr. Woo’s many years of experience as an educator and parent. You will have to read it to discover the answer.
