Solar terms can not only provide guidance on agricultural production but also help us anticipate changes to the weather in our daily life.

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.
