    9. This was a delightful story about a young Chinese boy and his experience as he and his grandfather readied for the Spring festival This book would be great to use to talk about the Chinese culture and the way different cultures celebrate It also is a great to discuss how helping others is so important.

    10. I love books like this, that explain a cultural tradition, and tell a story of a relatively normal day in the life of a child from a different culture They are endlessly fascinating And if simply told and beautifully illustrated like this one, both showing and telling of the little details that are unfamiliar to us, familiar to someone else, then they are just perfect.

    11. This book is a good introduction to Chinese New Year there is even a glossary in the back for new words and concepts The only problem is that the pictures are muted and possibly hard to make out It is too long for storytime.
