Share a treasured folk tale with young readers. With playfully animated illustrations, Abbie Rose and the Magic Suitcase brings to life the story of the Great Race, which determined the order of the animals on the Chinese calendar.

Read-Aloud narration lets children follow along independently as Abbie embarks on her whimsical adventure.
