With evocative prose and gorgeous illustrations, Dragon Dancer brings a wonderful Lunar New Year tradition to life. Balanced with perfect poise, bare toes curling around the bases of two razor sharp neck spines, arms outstretched and head held high, her sister stood solidly as the dragon bellowed and loosed a jet of green flame. Covering many genres some are great for engaging reluctant readers while others are perfect to entertain those reading above their age. Rain dance performed at times of drought may involve the use of figures of dragon as Chinese dragon was associated with rain in ancient China, for example the dragon Yinglong was considered a rain deity, [2] and the Shenlong had the power to determine how much wind and rain to bring. The patterns of the dragon dance are choreographed according to the skills and experiences acquired by the performers.

Absolutely beautiful illustrations that make the text come to life just like Yao wakes Shen Long to dance.
