"This is the Twenty-Four Solar Terms" is a natural science picture book created by a native Chinese author. It follows the chronological order of the twenty-four solar terms in a year, taking a small village in the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River as an example, telling the historical origin of the ancient invention of the twenty-four solar terms and its impact, enlightening our current lives. This set of books is divided into 4 volumes, "Spring", "Summer", "Autumn" and "Winter", each with 6 solar terms. The story in the book is based on the little girl Yaya’s experience at her grandfather’s house.
