I used this book for a group of 5 - 6 year olds as we studied Chinese culture in literature. The children enjoyed the story. Sam gets his Chinese New Year leisees from his gaandparents and can spend them on something of his own choosing for the first time (in the past he had to spend it on socks or a notebook). As he attends festivities in China Town, he sees a homeless man with no socks or shoes. He hurries away and tries to decide if he will spend his money on treats or a new toy. He sees the traditional lion dance of the Chinese New Year and discovers $4.00 does not go very far when you look at it with selfish eyes. At the end he discovers how rich he truly is when he gives it to the homeless man so he can buy socks for his feet. The book helped me introduce some chinese new year traditions to my class, while sharing a story of selfless giving by a little boy close to their own age.
