Bringing in the New Year by Grace Lin is my favorite book on Chinese New Year. The pictures are vibrant, awash in color. And the story really captures the importance of family as they come together to participate in various rituals that are traditionally part of this holiday. Right now it’s selling on amazon in a board book version. Is great for the littlest ones but good for grade school kids too.
Celebrating the Chinese New Year: An Activity Book by Hingman Chan is just what the title says. After sharing a little history of the holiday, the book walks you through how to make traditional Chinese New Year items such as paper lanterns, red lucky envelopes and parade gear. A great way to celebrate the holiday!
