Enjoy the complete collection of one of the longest and most acclaimed Asian American children's picture book series.

Each of the 12 animals of the lunar new year star in their own journey with a brand new cast of characters and settings.

Empowering themes of self-discovery and cultural exchange, plus colorfully animated illustrations, have proven popular with children, parents, and elementary educators.


The Year of the Dog, Rooster, and Monkey feature bilingual translations in simplified Chinese.



[The artwork is] reminiscent of the work of Chuck Jones, the animator behind such Warner Bros. cartoon characters as Bugs Bunny. They
look like animation stills…. With his new series, Chin wants to bring the ancient stories of the Chinese zodiac to life in a modern context.”
San Francisco Chronicle



"This set of 12 zodiac animal stories is a unique collection of courage, bravery, loyalty, and family adventures. Each book uses the character and personality of a Chinese zodiac sign to weave an entertaining tale of personal discovery and understanding."
―Warren Wright, Librarian, Chinese American International School



"Our children's collection was never complete without the latest 'installment' of Tales from the Chinese Zodiac. These books are a wonderful way to celebrate the New Year and to enjoy delightful escapades year round." ―Joan Mead, Librarian, County of Los Angeles Public Library

The Philosophy Chamber: Art and Science in Harvard's Teaching Cabinet, 1766–1820
Harvard College’s 18th-century Philosophy Chamber consisted of paintings, prints, sculptures, scientific instruments, natural specimens, and various indigenous artifacts—it was a rich and varied representation of not only artistic and cultural achievement but also contemporary understandings of the natural world. Dispersed and hidden away for nearly 200 years, this unrivaled collection has been reunited for the first time since it was originally assembled, providing an invaluable window into the art and culture of early America. It attests to the wide-ranging spirit of inquiry that characterized the late 18th and early 19th centuries. With an insightful look at conservation efforts and detailed examination of specific objects, including works by artists such as John Singleton Copley and John Trumbull, this publication explores the social and political stakes that underpinned one of the most remarkable assemblages of artifacts, images, and objects in the Atlantic World, and introduces readers to many long-forgotten icons of American culture.

No More Phonics and Spelling Worksheets (Not This but That)

"When we give every student worksheets to learn phonics and spelling, we miss opportunities to get our students excited about words and fail to give them the opportunity to meet the high standards represented by the Common Core Standards. Our students need instruction that makes them think and helps them apply their word knowledge to real reading and writing situations." -Jennifer Palmer and Marcia Invernizzi

We want students to be curious about how words work and develop strategies that work whether they are decoding words or spelling them. And our jobs would be easier if students couldn't wait for word study.

Yet so many classrooms are stuck in the cycle of unengaging, one-size fits all phonics and spelling worksheets.

Reading specialist Jennifer Palmer and literacy researcher Marcia Invernizzi offer better, more effective, more engaging practices. Their suggestions lead kids to not only make progress during word study but also to transfer what they learn about words to their reading and writing. No More Phonics and Spelling Worksheets show us:

  • why skill-and-drill methods and worksheets cause children to struggle or disengage
  • the kinds of teaching that research shows actually works
  • instructional ideas for word study can put to use right away.

"We can cast off one-size-fits-all factory instruction and try a more useful practice," write Jennifer and Marcia, "meeting each child where s/he is." Pick up No More Phonics and Spelling Worksheets, discover practices that better support literacy growth, and help everyone make progress.

A Strange and Fearful Interest: Death, Mourning, and Memory in the American Civil War
The American Civil War claimed the lives of 750,000 Americans. Death and mourning defined the four wrenching years between 1861 and 1865, leaving an indelible imprint on the nation at large. During these years, photography became a powerful tool of reportage and remembrance: "the field of photography is extending itself to embrace subjects of strange and sometimes of fearful interest," wrote Oliver Wendell Holmes in reference to a haunting series of Civil War views. Drawing on more than 200 works from the superb Civil War collections at the Huntington Library, many never published before, A Strange and Fearful Interest explores how photography and other media were used to describe, explain and perhaps come to terms with a national trauma on an unprecedented scale. The volume focuses on the Battle of Antietam (not only the bloodiest day in the nation's history, but also the first in which photographs of American battlefield dead were made); the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the national mourning that ensued and the execution of the conspirators; and the establishment of Gettysburg National Monument as part of larger attempts at reconciliation and healing.
