Year of the Pet Book Reviews
Although heís not first in the New Year cycle proper, the dog is the first of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac to be featured in this new series by Oliver Chin. The book follows Daniel, a pup born on New Yearís Day as he explores the world, befriends a girl named Lin, and learns how to become (hu)mankindís best friend. Each of the 11 other zodiac characters is introduced as Daniel runs into them in his travels. This fun book is a great way to kick off the Year of the Dog for kids and grown-ups alike.
