Chinese New Year! Celebrate with Barefoot Books!

Posted by Talula on February 8, 2008

Chinese Red Dragon PuppetThe Great Race (Chinese Zodiac)Asian Dreamland CDStories from the Silk RoadWe’re Riding On a CaravanYoga Pretzels CardsMy Daddy Is A PretzelTenzin’s Deer 

This post is a little late in the day; due to a major wonkiness in my computer hard drive — will expand on that issue later.

Now for a proper celebration.

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!   IT IS ‘THE YEAR OF THE RAT’!

WHICH MEANS THOSE WHO ARE EARTHY-TYPE PEOPLE AND HIDDEN TREASURES CAN BE FOUND TO BE GOOD AND PROSPEROUS THIS YEAR; BUT ALSO BE CAREFUL OF SECURITY (HIDDEN SECRETS, STOLEN ITEMS, BREAK-INS PARTICULARLY WITH HOMES WHICH HAVE AN ENTRANCE ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE HOME).  CHINESE FOLKLORE IN THE YEAR OF THE RAT SUGGESTS TO ENJOY THE EARTHY  FOLKS AND HIDDEN TREASURES, WHILE BEING CAUTIOUS OF YOUR HOME’S SECURITY.  

Celebrate by reading some wonderful folk tales from Asian cultures. Here at Barefoot Books we have several Asian-inspired items with gorgeous illustrations and some quotes about certain titles from some very famous people! Have a fun look at the list below.

We’re Riding on a Caravan ( An Adventure on the Silk Road)

The Great Race (The Story of the Chinese Zodiac)

Stories from the Silk Road (an expanded anthology [collection] of stories from Asian folklore)

Tenzin’s Deer (“This beautifully illustrated story aptly reflects the values pervading Tibetan culture” The Dalai Lama)

My Daddy is a Pretzel (Yoga for Parents and Kids) (“This book conveys [yoga’s] wisdom to kids and grown-ups alike in a way that combines light-hearted humor with high purpose – try it and see!” —Deepak Chopra

Yoga Pretzels (50 Fun Yoga Activities for Kids & Grownups) (“Yoga Pretzels is a fantastic way to spend quality time with my kids. Together, we exercise our bodies and minds leaving us feeling energized and refreshed! I’d highly recommend it to anyone with children” Caterine Zeta-Jones, actor & mother.   

Putumayo Asian Dreamland CD ( …tranquil lullabies…)

Motherbridge of Love ( A story of the connection between the East [birth mother] & West [adoptive mother] and the child they shared in creating) Author: Xinran
