Product Description

There are four seasons in a year. The ancient Chinese divided four seasons into 24 solar terms, each representing a distinctive phase of seasonal change. Solar terms can not ony provide guidance on agricultural production, but also help us anticipate changes of weather in our daily life. The book tells a story of a little girl, Yaya, who visits her grandparents in the countryside and experiences the changes of 24 solar terms throughout the year there. Opening this book, together with Yaya, you will have a journey of experiencing traditional Chinese folk festivals, learning about old rituals, observing animals and plants, and listening to the language of nature. The book evokes the profound sense of wonder and fascination with the natural world exemplified in such great works of children’s literature by Virginia Lee Burton and Holling Clancy Holling. It will be of interest to anyone wanting to know about the complex relationships of the Earth, the Sun, the moon, and the seasons.
