Synopsis

Chinese Zodiac Animals by Zhu Jingwen

Children will love to learn all about their Chinese zodiac animal with this great multicultural book for kids. Which Chinese zodiac animal are you? A clever rat? A brave tiger? A hardworking ox? Or an energetic dragon? In ancient China, each sign marked a different year in a 12-year calendar. Over time, people believed that a person's character and destiny were somehow decided by his or her zodiac animal. Chinese Zodiac Animals explains the traits of each animal sign and what luck the future might hold for the person born under that sign. Chinese Zodiac Animals is a fun and informative way to learn about an important part of Chinese traditional culture.

Reviews

This small-format guide teaches readers about characteristics of their Chinese zodiac signs, conveyed by cute cartoon illustrations: a selfless sheep tends to a broken robot, while an impulsive and willful horse goes skydiving. Tang includes advice about choosing professions, money management, as well as lucky colors and compatible signs. Readers with burgeoning interests in horoscopes should find it an engaging diversion. --Publishers Weekly
