In this fun calligraphy for kids book, readers will follow along with Mimi, an eight 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
