Award-winning team Ken Mochizuki and Dom Lee share the true story of the formative years of Bruce Lee’s early life growing up in Hong Kong in the 1940s and 1950s, before he became an international film star. Bruce Lee eventually became a pioneer of martial arts cinema. The educator's guide on Be Water My Friend from Lee & Low Books includes a book summary, background, pre-reading focus questions, during-reading questions and vocabulary, and post-reading discussion questions, literature circle roles, reader-response and other writing prompts, ELL support, and interdisciplinary activities.
