The Chinese Children Next Door – Pearl Buck

Posted: January 6th, 2013 | 2 Comments »

Pearl Buck’s The Chinese Children Next Door, was about a family of six little girls totally overshadowed and enslaved by the seventh child, a baby brother.The book was first published in 1942 (I think) and sold very well – below are a selection of covers including an early recorded version on vinyl (kind of Audible.com for the 1950s!).

    I have been looking for this vinyl recording for years! The only copy disappeared from our library. I believe it was by Columbia Records. Can you give me its label information? I would love to have an MP3 or other format if available from this record.

    I would like to purchase this record “The Chinese Children Next Door” as I had it as a child and misplaced it after moving recently. Could you please let me know how I can bug it?? Thank you ☺️
