Happy Chinese New Year! This year is the Year of the Rat which is my sign and to celebrate I wanted to show you the cutest book called, The Year of the Rat: Tales from the Chinese Zodiac by Oliver Chin and illustrated by Jeremiah Alcorn.
Here's what it's about from the site:
With his parents' blessing, the baby rat Ralph investigates the village with his new friend, the boy Bing. But being accepted isn't as easy as Ralph would like, especially since some of his hereditary habits are hard to break. But when things go awry at Bing's birthday party, how can Ralph help if he's locked in the barn? Surely this rodent has some tricks up his sleeve to save the day!This story is just so sweet and the illustrations have that beautiful classic cartoon feel. Makes me proud to be a rat!
Oh and if you want to know what your sign is and what the Year of the Rat will bring you, you can read your Chinese Horoscope.
