Crouching Tiger

by barker_patricia (WorldCat user published about 2 weeks ago) Very Good Permalink

This is a great book to use to introduce children to Chinese culture and to the art of Tai Chi. It also teaches patience, an act that takes a lot of practice. Each page shows an example of Tai Chi poses, and the story itself is about a little boy who learns this martial art.
