The Elemental Horses – 12 Things to Remember
Twelve special horses are waiting for riders to share a special journey with on the Elemental Horses Carousel. It was a toy, a teaching device and a tool for dire times.
12 Things to Remember book introduces the 12 horses. Each horse has a real Chinese word for a name. If a kid learns the names and personality of each horse they have learned a Chinese word. It is for both Chinese and non-Chinese children.
*For kids who are too young to read, it is to be treated like a picture book with the parents describing the artwork to them. The reading level of all 4 books is 3-4 grade and up. When kids reach 3-4 grade, the stories they read have less and less artwork as they are supposed to be able to have strong imaginations. That is a problem for those with weak vocabulary. People who struggle with language rely on visuals to help them understand what words mean. It is also to get kids who do not like to read, to read about the interesting artwork they are looking at.
