These set of 3 Chinese legends stories are written in an Embedded Reading style. It is widely know that the scaffolding of reading material develops reading skills, and people who read acquire more language and develop better language skills. In this serie, 年的来历，十二生肖的传说 and 元宵节的传说 are featured. Each legend contains 4 different levels of readings. They are like stepping stones: weak readers could start from a base reading and build their interests and competence step by step. Strong readers could jump right into the level they feel that challenges and engages them. An embedded reading provides an opportunity for everyone to succeed.
