4.0 out of 5 stars Chinese New Year 7 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book to help explain Chinese New Year to my class of 30 5 year olds. The vibrant and simple illustrations were a big hit and the simplicity of the text made the subject much more accessible for them. I would thoroughly recommend this book to other teaching colleagues or to parents who would like to give their children an introduction to the celebration of Chinese New Year. A definite thumbs up from me!!
