Why be proud being Chinese - Kindergarten Version

A kindergarten student was told "that everything is made in China and that is bad" so I thought I would create a list of some positives:

Why be Proud - Kindergarten Version

1. Your iPod and iPhone were also made in China.
2. China's culture is 5000 years old. Europe was still in the stone age.
3. Chinese discovered fireworks, remember Mulan.
4. Chinese created Kung Fu, remember Kung Fu Panda.
5. China invented paper and printing
6. China's government has said they are going to fix the issue of bad stuff coming from China.
7. China invented paper money.
8. China has put a man in space.
9. China hosted the 2008 Olympics.
10. China invented kites!

I am writing this from home, so I don't have my book " Made in China - Ideas and Inventions from Ancient China by Suzanne Williams " as a reference, or the list would be much longer.

Europe and the US had the same type issues such as during the Industrial revolution (guess what my daughter is studying). Upton Sinclair's the Jungle about the Meat Packing industry documents this in the US.
