"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.

"A comprehensive review of the art of calligraphy (decorative handwriting) that also provides hands-on exercises and instructions for your budding calligrapher...The book celebrates the beauty of writing beyond alphabets and writing as an art form and meditative practice. Beautiful color ink wash illustrations throughout the book provide a lush and contemplative feel, and an included CD provides more information beyond the text. Anyone with interest in art, language or China will find this book a valuable and rich resource." -Asian Fortune News
