Synopsis

My First Book of Chinese Calligraphy is a fun and engaging introduction to one of China's most celebrated arts and crafts for kids. Calligraphy-the art of producing decorative handwriting or lettering with a pen or brush-has been around for thousands of years. In this fun calligraphy-for-kids book, readers will follow along with Mimi, an eigh- year-old, who takes her first steps towards learning this magical art. Dive in, and explore:



The Evolution of Chinese Writing-how Chinese characters first began, thousands of years ago, and how they have evolved

The Order of the Strokes-learn how to write the strokes in the correct order

The Radicals-what are they, and how to unlock their secrets

The Four Treasures of Calligraphy- the four essential tools to get started

Movements and Position-how to master your mind's focus, your breathing and even how to move

The Five Styles of Calligraphy-Zhuan Shu (seal), Li Shu (clerical), Kai Shu (regular), Cao Shu (cursive), and Xing Shu (running)

The Eight Strokes- how to draw the eight strokes; with them, you can write anything

Writing a Character in Calligraphy-create an entire character in calligraphy





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.
