Review:

"The traditional message that it is better to give than to receive is handled in a genuine, thoughtful manner that will be realistic to children. Detailed descriptions of the sights and sounds of the New Year celebration build in contrast to Sam's growing introspection, becoming even more dramatic and adding to the depth of the story. The illustrators masterfully combine Chinatown's exotic setting with the universal emotions of childhood through expressive portraits of the characters."

School Library Journal

"A beautifully told story for all ages about the gift of giving."

Creative Classroom

"(Pick of the Lists, American Bookseller Magazine) The subtle blending of cultures in both the illustrations and text engross the reader in the dilemma of a young Chinese-American boy faced with spending his New Year's gift money. On a shopping spree with his mother, he discovers that the ultimate value is giving. The artists' vibrant watercolors embellish this story, which reaches across ethnic boundaries to reaffirm a universal truth."
