Little Maomao's dad works many miles away...but he is coming home for New Year! Maomao and her mum are very excited. Who will find the coin that brings good fortune? Little Maomao's father works far away from the family home, so his return for New Year is a cause for celebration. Maomao and her mother welcome him back and together they enjoy the firecrackers and make sticky rice balls - in one of which Maomao finds the lucky fortune coin. But after watching the dragon dance and playing snowballs, Maomao discovers disaster has struck...where is the lucky coin? At first inconsolable to have lost it, Maomao is finally restored to happiness before her father must depart again. This title is a perfect gift for New Year. This is a heart-stirring portrait of the abiding bond between parent and child. It movingly conveys the separation endured by migrant-worker families the world over.

Review:

Two things make this Chinese New Year story remarkable-Zhu's meticulously observed gouaches and the family's poignant backstory...Yu and Zhu create a memorable portrait of China's most joyous holiday and a testimony to the love that holds Maomao's family together.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)This bittersweet and poignant story not only tells of a family celebrating a holiday, but also explores the trepidation and joy of a reunion... The story of an absent parent returning only during special occasions is one that speaks to more and more American children. The celebrations and traditions might differ, but the story of missing distant family is universal.--School Library Journal (starred review)
