Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-In rhymed couplets, a Chinese-American child describes the excitement, preparation, and festivities of the Chinese New Year, culminating in a parade that includes a magnificent dragon carried aloft on sticks. The format of the book is foldout cardboard; for best effect, after reading it aloud, stand it on a table to show the eight-page panorama of this fine, fierce creature and the appreciative throng of celebrators in the streets of Chinatown. The watercolor-and-gouache illustrations are full of bright colors and action, reflecting the culture and the festivities. Combine this title with Kate Waters and Madeline Slovenz-Low's Lion Dancer (Scholastic, 1990), which is more detailed and full of vibrant photographs.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
