FUZHOU - With the new semester starting this month, Wang Jingjing, 6, and her elder sister Wang Lian, 14, have resumed their studies back home in school in Jiujiang, Jiangxi province, but memories of their rare time spent with their working parents in a noisy clothing factory in Shishi, Fujian province, about 750 kilometers from their hometown, still warm their hearts.

The sisters are part of a group called "little migratory birds" - children left behind in their countryside homes who "fly" hundreds of miles to enjoy a precious short family reunion in their parents' workplaces in cities.

The two sisters' happy moments there include the two playing a game to get the right to run errands for their parents, such as fetching stacks of lining fabrics and galloping upstairs to the parents who labor over piles of half-made jackets.
