    It’s almost time for Chinese New Year and children love hearing about the Chinese Zodiac Story and the story of the Great Race. Here at Mrs Mactivity, we have a range of Chinese New Year Resources to help children learn about Chinese New Year and the Chinese Zodiac. A slide from our new Mrs Mactivity Zodiac story range.   This book tells a story of how the Chinese Zodiac was created. Although the illustrations are a bit simple and gaudy for my taste, I suspect most little ones will be fine with them. The text is well done and easy to follow/5(35).

    A serial killer in the San Francisco Bay Area taunts police with his letters and cryptic messages. We follow the investigators and reporters in this lightly fictionalized account of the true 's case as they search for the murderer, becoming obsessed with the case. Based on Robert Graysmith's book, the movie's focus is the lives and careers. As is known to all, the rat is one of the nasty species because it is dirty and tricky, provoking widespread indignation and discontent. But why does the rat rank top in Chinese Zodiac? This is indeed inconceivable. Is there really a "story"? A long, long time ago, Nu Wa returned to the Heavenly Palace after creating human beings.

    The book Lunheng(論衡), published in 80 CE, includes a wide range of topics about society during the period of the Han Dynasty ( BC AD). Lunheng is being considered the earliest document that talked about Chinese Zodiac. In fact, the Chinese Zodiac was created by many people through many years and slowly became what it is today. Celebrate Chinese New Year and learn how every animal earned its place in the Chinese zodiac by taking part in the Great Race! Discover who will come first to win the ultimate prize, and find out why Cat will never forgive his friend Rat in this ancient folk tale that has been passed from generation to generation. Praise for Deep in the Woods, the previous title from Christopher Co.
