Edinburgh's Chinese Community School marked the beginning of the Year of the Rat by launching a book of stories for children.

The stories were written by parents of pupils at the school and based on traditional Chinese tales. They are designed to encourage young children to learn more about China and to promote family values.

The text is in Mandarin and Pinyin, which helps teach Mandarin pronunciation, as well as English.

School chairman Mark Tang hopes the book will help young children to learn more about Chinese "culture and virtues".

Help with planning and printing came from Edinburgh's Telford College, with funding from City Literacy and Numeracy Edinburgh.
