Synopsis: This exuberant story follows a Chinese American family as they prepare for the Lunar New Year. Each family member lends a hand as they sweep out the dust of the old year, hang decorations, and make dumplings. Then it's time to celebrate. There will be fireworks and lion dancers, shining lanterns, and a great, long dragon parade to help bring in the Lunar New Year. And the dragon parade in our book is extra long?on a great surprise fold out page at the end of the story.
Grace Lin's bright and gloriously patterned artwork is perfect for this holiday tale. Her story is simple and tailor-made for reading aloud to young children, and she includes an informative author's note with further details on the customs surrounding the Lunar New Year for parents and teachers.
About the Author: GRACE LIN has written and illustrated several picture books about this Chinese American family (based on her own!): Dim Sum for Everyone!, Kite Flying, Fortune Cookie Fortunes, and Thanking the Moon. Her novels include Year of the Dog, Year of the Rat, and the 2010 Newbery Honor winner Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.
