Summary

"Celebrate Chinese New Year" continues the spectacular "Holidays Around the World" series by looking at this child-friendly holiday. Using fairly brief text and approximately 25 fabulous photographs, the book gives a flavour for the holiday as it is celebrated around the world.

"Celebrate Chinese New Year" focuses on historical and cultural aspects of the holiday: traditions, food, types of celebration. The extensive back matter includes fun facts; a recipe; a map showing the locations of the photographs in the book; a resource list of books, videos, and Web sites; and a note from an expert consultant. This note, aimed at parents and teachers, helps put "Chinese New Year" in a greater cultural and historic context.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "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.--Perkins, Linda Copyright 2008 Booklist"
