In this fun calligraphy-for-kids book, readers will follow along with Mimi, an eigh- year-old, who takes her first steps towards learning this magical art. Dive in, and explore:

  • 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)
