In the Jin dynasty, there was a kid named Cheyin, who liked studying and reading very much.

However, his family was too poor to afford an oil lamp so he couldn't read books at night.

One day, he saw many glistening glowworms flying around, and an idea suddenly crossed his mind.

He caught dozens of glowworms and put them in a bag to illuminate his books.

This famous story is often used to encourage kids to study hard.

However, many Chinese kids instead try to catch glowworms to test its feasibility.
