This delightful book is a light-hearted and easy-to-understand primer on the nature of life - from conception, to living everyday, and the passage into death, - seen from the perspective of the ancient Chinese philosophy of the law of the 5 Elements. Each page is illustrated with detailed pen and ink drawings. Page size is 8 1/4" x 10". I love it when people share with me their and their kid's coloring results!
