This is a unique hands-on craft book with a wonderful collection of Chinese craft projects. Kids, teachers, parents and event organizers will find all the instruction they need to make the projects. There is also an impressive amount of cultural content including lots of quick facts and interesting tidbits about China. The templates in the back can be copied or scanned and are beautifully illustrated. This book is also uniquely suited for very young kids (simple color and cut crafts) as well as older teens and adults that want to learn how to do calligraphy, brush painting, knot tying and other traditional arts. There is a lot of wonderful material in just one book!
