Giveaway - The Great Race from Barefoot Books



Ever wonder about the story behind the animals of the Chinese zodiac? The Great Race from Barefoot Books retells this story with vibrant illustrations. It also provides intriguing notes about the Chinese calendar, annual festivals, and character traits of the animals that rule different years. I am a horse, which are popular, independent and fun. But of course!

My nine year old daughter enjoyed the book as well, although she felt that the cat was cheated by the rat. Hint, have you heard of the Year of the Cat? It doesn't exist! Celebrate the year of the Snake this Chinese New Year on February 10th with your own copy of The Great Race.  Xin nian kuai le!

I love The Barefoot Book of Fairy Tales! The retellings are great and I love the illustrations.

P.S. You should tell your daughter about the Vietnamese Zodiac; they have a cat (and therefore a year of the cat).
