Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Remy Dou
The Chinese New Year represents a joyous occasion replete with good wishes for everyone. Chinese Americans celebrate this time in many different ways, from getting new clothes and cleaning the house to parades, food, and fireworks! Every aspect of the festivity carries meaning, and each is grounded in culture and tradition. Robinson helps young readers explore the roots and symbols of this holiday, while serving a taste of how different groups celebrate. Culminating in the dragon parade, the Chinese New Year is an experience for all of the senses. This book is written primarily for upper elementary readers, and the text flows smoothly and holds attention. Colorful photographs decorate each layout, though they do not add significant content or context. Regardless, this resource serves as a meaningful introduction to the holiday for any young student or curious reader. A glossary, a "Read More" section, and an index supplement the narrative. The Chinese New Year represents a time of new beginnings for everyone. However this holiday is celebrated, it is always a time for telling others gung hay fat choy—[I am] wishing you good fortune and wealth! Reviewer: Remy Dou
