Description
Lavishly illustrated guide to Chinese Astrology for children ages 8-12. * Illustrations and text describe the characteristics of each of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac and of those born under each sign. * Each animal is accompanied by a traditional Chinese folktale. * Offers a brief overview of Chinese astrology and the history of the Chinese zodiac. Anyone who has ever taken children to a Chinese restaurant and watched them read the paper placemat with fascination knows that children (and adults) love the playfulness and self-reflection of Chinese astrology. Now children can learn about the unique character traits and legends that make up the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, as well as experience a deeper appreciation for the cultural traditions behind Chinese astrology. Beautifully illustrated with lifelike animals that jump off the page, Animals in the Stars provides an informative and playful tool for self-exploration using this ancient tradition. The human personality traits of the 12 animals--both good and bad--are described in detail along with explanations of the significance of being born in the "year of" that particular animal. Each animal description is also accompanied by a traditional Chinese folktale further personifying the unique qualities and characteristics of that animal. Youngsters can enjoy these magical teaching tales while learning their "sign" as well as those of family members and friends. This wonderful introduction to the foundations of Chinese astrology is a perfect resource for the child seeking to know more about Chinese culture, zodiac animal characteristics, relationship dynamics, or esoteric traditions, as well as those seeking the simple fun inherent in the combination of astrology and animals.
