Read Quill & Quire's starred review of the book

Twelve in a Race is a read-aloud rhyming book. It retells the origin story of the Chinese zodiac, and reveals the characteristics of each of the twelve animals. From “persuasive and smart” Rat to “loyal and diligent” Dog, children will find an animal to root for in this age-old tale.

Catherine is an educator, consultant, and writer with a love of children’s books. She wrote Twelve in a Race for her son so that he could learn more about his Chinese heritage. Beautifully illustrated by Japanese artist Sae Kimura, Twelve in a Race engages young readers to find out which animal placed first, which placed last, and which animal correlates to their birth year.
