He began to slice the steaming corned beef in the oval ashet before him, while Mama served the potatoes and cabbage, at the other en. Papa exhaled a little breath. It’s a relief to find some decency left in the world. Did you have to take a cab? N. here was nothing much to bring. He has grown out of most of his things. And it seems the men took everything. An inward spasm seemed to grip Papa, he stared at a painful vision in the air, murmuring: One extravagance after another. Small wonder there was nothing left. Oh, Papa, there was such a lot of illness.

Grace Lin’s artwork is a bright and gloriously patterned celebration in itself! And her story is tailor-made for reading aloud. About Bringing In the New Year. This exuberant story follows a Chinese American family as they prepare for the Lunar New Year. Her story is simple and tailor-made for reading aloud to young children, and she includes an informative author’s note for parents, teachers and children who want to learn even more.

It was all new work to them, because rich children like the Beverleys never cooked or worked in the house. The children enjoyed cooking their first meal. Let's get some dinner ready. They washed some potatoes and cut some meat and vegetables into pieces. Then they put them with some water in a pot on the fire. Humphrey was clever with his hands, and learned how to make things out of wood.

No adult child has the right to dictate to a parent how he or she lives their life. On the other hand, it’s natural to feel anxiety (even frustrated hostility) if they appear to be about to make a wrong decision. Then make a longer trip (say a month or six weeks), renting a small apartment or bedsit (ask for her guidance) to see how you like the Sunshine State.

Reading to your children leads to questions about the book and the information within. Spending time with one another, reading, and talking, can bring parents closer to your children. It gives you a chance to speak about what is happening and use this as a learning experience. For parents who work, or have a busy lifestyle, relaxing with your child and simply enjoying each other’s company while reading can be a great way for you both to wind down, relax, and bond.

This exuberant story follows a Chinese American family as they prepare for the Lunar New Year. Each member of the family lends a hand as they sweep out the dust of the old year, hang decorations, and make dumplings. Then it’s time to put on new clothes and celebrate with family and friends. 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 surprise fold-out page at the end of the story. Grace Lin’s artwork is a bright and gloriously patterned celebration in itself! And her story is tailor-made for reading aloud.

I bought this board book for a friend and borrowed the hard cover copy for my daughter from the library. I'll need to order my daughter her own hardcopy soon! She loves the fold-out dragon at the end of the story and I like that the illustrations and story reflect our family's culture. She sees a family that looks like hers honoring traditions we do at home. I absolutely love that her experiences are reflected back to her in this book. Lin's illustrations are vibrant, fun and you can pick out new details with each read.

Colorful illustrations and the text is sweetly done. I have had many Chinese children look at this book. It is eye catching in our library. Gung Hay Fat Choy. There isn't much text in this book but, it is interesting. It is marked 3.5 for Accelerated Reader but, honestly I would read it to K and 1st graders. 2nd graders at the most.

MAY 2013: This is a great book. So simple. I've read this at play groups for 1.5-2year olds & they loved it. But it still captures the attention of older kids. Well written, bright colors. I love this book.

It's a perfect introduction to chinese new year. the fold out dragon is the favorite of course!
We always read it at least twice in a row.
the second time we have children volunteer to do each activity (i.e. one sweeps out the new year, etc)

This is a good book for Chinese New Year discussion. I would recommend it along with the Dragon Dance, the Dancing Dragon, and My First Chinese New Year. This is my kid's favorite among them.
This picture book captures the warmth, joy, and colors of the Lunar New Year celebration with a simple story and illustrations. My kids love this book and will read it even when the holiday is long over. I regularly donate this book to my kids' classrooms where it becomes a favorite of the teachers and students.
