My name is Mimi, I'm eight years old, and I'm learning calligraphy! A fun and engaging way to learn, My First Book of Chinese Calligraphy is an excellent introduction to China and one of China's most recognizable arts for young people. Join Mimi as she takes the first steps towards learning this magical art. Dive in, and explore: * How Chinese words first began, thousands of years ago. * How to draw the 8 strokes; with them, you can write anything. * What "radicals" are…and how to unlock their secrets. * How to use the brush, the paper and ink to enjoy writing in Chinese. The included interactive CD-ROM enables learners to play creative games to see, hear and try Chinese writing; listen to the pronunciation of the Chinese characters; observe calligraphers in action and print the characters to create practice pages.
