China - The Great Race Book - The Story of Chinese Zodiac

The Story of the Chinese Zodiac

Race with the animals of the Zodiac as they compete to have the years of the Chinese calendar named after them.

"And they are off! Thirteen creatures in China have come to the river to join in the Emperor's Race. Who will win the ultimate honour of having the first year named after them? Of all the animals, Rat and Cat are the greatest of friends, but will competition get the better of them? Race along with Rat, Cat, Ox, Monkey, Dragon and more as you discover the fascinating legend of the Chinese Zodiac. Then learn all about the Chinese Calendar, the festivals and the animal that rules the year you were born!"

 The excitement-filled story is followed by notes on the Chinese calendar, important Chinese holidays, and a chart outlining the animal signs based on birth years.

Printed on 100% acid free paper from ancient friendly forests

Cute story and pictures. It was a great way to introduce you to the Chinese Zodiac and explain in it in a simple and entertaining way. The table and information at the end were especially interesting. The pictures were fun to look at and really helped to tell the story.
