Mei Li | Thomas Handforth

“‘You will rule over a kingdom”‘. This quote shows that women also have the opportunity to rule over a kingdom and should be treated equally.

Mei Li | Thomas Handforth

This book shows children that women are capable of just as much as the boys. It is a big girl power book and should be read in a classroom.

Mei Li | Thomas Handforth

Award: Caldecott
Review: This story is about a little girl named Mei Li who attend New Year‘s Fair with her brother San Yu. . After the exciting adventures at the fair, Mei Li returns home only to greet the Kitchen God. The Kitchen God recognizes that Mei Li is a princess and tells her that her home is her kingdom and it is filled with loyal subjects. This story is a great read to promote girl power.

#lovenotes or more known as #loveletters are very popular during Chinese New Year. These romantic pastries were used by lovebirds to communicate in olden times. "The edible nature of the messages ensured the absence of proof and consumption of the heartfelt message was also seen as a sign that the lover‘s words had been taken to heart."

One of my #newyear #resolutions was to embrace my intuition. I‘ve been exploring crystals and tarot as part of that goal. (I‘m already into essential oils, astrology, and meditation). The Spirit Almanac recommends getting a tarot deck that resonates with you. I have an old Rider-Waite deck, but it has never resonated with me. Any recommendations for #tarot decks? 🔮

NotAJot I like the Druid Craft Tarot Deck - the artwork is beautiful and I prefer the Druid re-imagining of some of the cards 😀 10mo
Weaponxgirl I like the wild unknown deck but the best thing to do is look at a few different ones and see what you are personally drawn to. I‘ve got a few different ones now that I use for different moods 10mo
REPollock I use the Crowley deck. I don‘t care for Crowley himself but the woman who did the art for the cards made some really cool images. 10mo

nudibranch Agree with @Weaponxgirl , the wild unknown tarot is great. Although it's also a lot of fun to out together a tarot deck of your own, starting with a blank deck 😊 10mo
Weaponxgirl @nudibranch I would love to do that but I haven‘t got the talent vs how much of a perfectionist I am when it comes to that sort of thing. 10mo
nudibranch @Weaponxgirl Haha yeah, it's a lot of work for sure! I've seen some really great collage decks, though, too. 10mo
Weaponxgirl @nudibranch oh I admire the people who do it so much! I just know that I would be stuck playing the fool trying to get the fool right for years and getting cross with myself 😂 10mo
catiewithac @NotAJot @nudibranch @Weaponxgirl @REPollock thanks for sharing your recommendations! There are so many great decks out there that it‘s hard to choose. But I think I‘m going with Morgan Greer! (edited) 10mo
