Product Description

Review

"The tale radiates warmth and quietly builds up to the dramatic dragon dance and the traditional greeting of 'Gung Hay Fat Choy!' The collage illustrations, cut from paper with colorful Asian designs, also include paint and other media to capture the joyful celebrants. This is a clear introduction to the holiday that young children will enjoy in one-on-one or group read-alouds." --"School Library Journal"

"This one's a winner." --"Kirkus Reviews"

Praise for "My First Kwanzaa"
"The simple text and colorful folkloric illustrations with vivid patterns make this a good book to share with young children." --"School Library Journal"

"An ebullient tribute for families whose members may have come from a faraway place." --"Publishers Weekly"

Praise for "The Colors of Us"
"Katz's pencil-and-gouache pictures joyously convey the range of human pigmentation. Positive and useful." --"School Library Journal"
"Bold illustrations celebrate diversity with a child's open-hearted sensibility and a mother's love." --"Kirkus Reviews"""

Format: Hardcover
When I was invited to read a book about Chinese New Year to young readers at school(K & PreK), this book was my personal pick. Adorable story and illustrations about a family of three generations celebrating Chinese New Year, MY FIRST CHINESE NEW YEAR contains all essential festive elements of this important holiday. From cleaning the house to make way for good fortune, getting new haircuts and clothes, cooking the big banquet for family reunion, getting that lucky red envelopes and finally going out with everyone to watch the dragon and lion dance on the street, this book has it all and will surely delight a classroom full of curious minds. Spice it up with paper lion puppet and red envelopes with candies inside for the class and you are surely in the spirit of Chinese New Year celebration!
