Book Review: Bringing In the New Year
When we were at the library, I found this book called Bringing In the New Year by Grace Lin. It shows a Chinese family preparing for Chinese New Year.
Jie-Jie sweeps out the old year, Ba-Ba hangs decorations, Ma-Ma makes dumplings, Mei-Mei gets a haircut, and the little girl puts on a new qi pao for the New Year feast. There are firecrackers, lions, lanterns, and a dragon. At the end of the book is a short summary of the customs and traditions associated with Chinese New Year.
What a delightful introduction to Chinese New Year for young kids!
