Booklist (December 15, 2008 (Vol. 105, No. 8))
Grades 1-4. Vivid, colorful photographs of fireworks, lion dancers, lanterns, and food fill the pages of this introduction to Chinese New Year. The concise but informative narrative notes when the event occurs, cites a few of the countries where it is observed, and explains the reasons behind the customs and symbols, especially those traditions involving children. The well-captioned pictures capture the intense excitement and raucous exuberance of the festivities. Appended information on the Chinese calendar and zodiac, a craft idea, a recipe, a game, and sources for further information make this a great addition to primary classrooms as well as libraries.
