Holidays Around the World: Celebrate Chinese New Year : with Fireworks, Dragons, and Lanterns Hardback
Part of the Holidays Around the World series
"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.
