Book ReviewsMegan PeronaComment

Bringing in the New Year by Grace Lin

A colorful board book featuring all the rich traditions of Chinese New Year. Also known as Lunar New Year, this holiday is celebrated by many countries around the world. The dust of the old year is swept away and many things are done to help the new year start fresh! Food has symbolic meaning to help draw good things like health and wealth. In addition, lanterns are lit and people set firecrackers to chase away bad spirits! 

Thanks for the review Chrissy!
