Christopher Corr: The Great Race

Y thanks to Netgalley and uarto Publishing for roviding an egalley in exchange for a fair and honest review I have heard this story before And the conclusion of the story is that cats didn t make it into the Chinese zodiac and that s why they hate rats who did make it in Funny thing is that in the Vietnamese Zodiac the cat did make it instead of the rabbit And although we refer to this time of year as Chinese New Year remember that the Lunor New Year is celebrated by many Asian cultures So be clear if this book is being used in a class room that there are variations on this story as well as the zodiac itselfThe CSA Scenarios for the MRCGP, third edition pictures are ok The story telling is clear but it could have been Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review. K looks like a delectable candy box There is a lesson here about friendship and sharing but the book never feelslodding or edantic Which may be why the lesson just goes down like the truth'.

Ebook Books The Great Race –

Track of the assing time One day the Emperor decided to hold a great race He invited all the animals to join in The first twelve to cross the river would be given the honour of having a year named after them I love myths legends and folktales It s neat to see how useful information is encoded into stories This story simply told aloud teaches kids and adults the seuence of the Chinese Zodiac and rovides a duel explanation of why the Zodiac consists of these animals and also why cats and rats don t get along The artwork was interesting It s a bit too abstract for me I refer things to look a little realistic I read this with my cubs though and the younger ones really liked the Rant pictures I m guessing that art is geared towards the younger readersMan. Cat will never forgive his friend Rat in this ancient folk tale that has beenassed from generation to generation  Praise for Deep in the Woods the revious title from Christopher Corr ' the boo.
