Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Dragon Dance: A Chinese New Year Lift-the-Flap Book by Joan Holub, illus. by Benrei Huang, tells how Chinese families celebrate the New Year with special foods, gifts of money tucked into red envelopes for good luck, fireworks and parades with dramatic dragon puppets. The bouncy, rhyming text and large flaps on sturdy pages are just right for young children, and directions for making a dragon puppet extend the fun. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This charming lift-the-flap paperback book offers a very colorful and attractive introduction to a Chinese New Year celebration. Without appearing to be teaching, fun facts about this ethnic holiday are presented. Samples of Chinese writing make appearances in natural ways. The use of the color red for good luck is shown on clothing and gift envelopes. Children are pictured helping to clean the house and shopping for treats at the market. Grandparents arrive for a festive meal and, afterwards, there is a parade featuring a huge red and gold paper dragon; and, for the grand finale, fireworks! 2003, Puffin/Penguin, Ages 2 to 6.

    Teaching Chinese New Year at school

    This book is fantastic. I have two daughters adopted from China. I have used this book to teach Chinese New year for 4 years now. I have used it in nursery school, kindergarten and this year, first grade. We act out each page of the book. For example, we set up 3 stations in the room to go shop for plum blossoms, oranges and 'fish' (Pepperidge farm goldfish). We have them make believe they are sweeping their house, we have each child receive a Chinese red envelope, etc.. Each page is acted out. Then, we make paper lanterns and have a parade while playing Chinese music. The children have sooo much fun!! I have had several friends buy the book and do the same thing. A definite must have Chinese New Year book for little ones.
