Chinese Stories

Katy has Chinese myth, legend and folktale to delight all ages of children.  Can be used to celebrate Chinese New Year or to build understanding of this important culture.  She tells creation myth of how yin and yang came into being and how people were made; animal stories of how cat and dog fell out and the little pig who would not grow; folktales of the spring of eternal youth and the time the nodding tiger came to town; the great legend of the boy who became a dragon.  She brings a few simple props and a Chao gong to illustrate the tales and give a flavour of Chinese culture.
