About the Author:

Theodora Lau was born in Shanghai and currently resides in southern California. The author of The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes, she is married with three children.

From Library Journal:

Parenting books abound, teaching us everything from nutrition to discipline. This unique book uses Chinese astrology to help us become better parents. We're all familiar with the 12 Chinese animal signs from place mats in Chinese restaurants. Lau (The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes) wrote this book to help parents understand the strengths and weaknesses of these signs and how they affect the undeveloped personalities of their children. The book is divided into 12 chapters to correspond with the 12 signs, e.g., Rat, Dragon, and Tiger. Each chapter provides an overview of the sign's personality traits, along with the effects of birth order and sibling rivalry. The child's ascendant sign, which is thankfully figured easily by the local time in the place of the birth, characterizes the child's "inner self." Each chapter ends with a newly woven Chinese fairy tale designed to impart lessons and lasting impressions for our children. This unique parenting book is recommended for public libraries for the fine and evenhanded treatment the author provides with the Chinese horoscopes.
