My First Book of Chinese Calligraphy is a fun and engaging introduction to one of China’s most popular 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 eight 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 8 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.
