"Celebrate Chinese New Year" continues the spectacular "Holidays Around the World" series by looking at this child-friendly holiday.
Using fairly brief text and approximately 25 fabulous photographs, the book gives a flavour for the holiday as it is celebrated around the world. "Celebrate Chinese New Year" focuses on historical and cultural aspects of the holiday: traditions, food, types of celebration.
The extensive back matter includes fun facts; a recipe; a map showing the locations of the photographs in the book; a resource list of books, videos, and Web sites; and a note from an expert consultant.
This note, aimed at parents and teachers, helps put "Chinese New Year" in a greater cultural and historic context.
