More About the Author

Hello! Thanks so much for your interest in me and my books!

I grew up in Upstate NY with my parents and 2 sisters, whom are featured in many of my books, including "Dim Sum For Everyone!" and my novels, "The Year of the Dog" and "The Year of the Rat." My mother and I were the star characters in my first book, "The Ugly Vegetables"--I cut both my sisters out of that story! They were quite upset with me and made me promise never to cut them out again. And since then, I haven't...yet.

While many of my books highlight my family, not all of them do. My Newbery Honor-winning novel "Where the Mountain Meets the Moon," is an Asian inspired fantasy that some people call a Chinese 'Wizard of Oz,' and my early reader "Ling & Ting" is inspired by the old 'Flicka, Dicka & Ricka' books I read when I was young.

I hope you enjoy my books. Please visit my website: www.gracelin.com for more info about them (behind the scene stories and pictures) as well as other amusing anecdotes!

This is a beautiful book with colorful illustrations. The text is simple and makes this a quick, informative story. Being a teacher, I could use this story in a preschool class or with older children. Grace Lin is a very gifted illustrator. My daughter and I enjoy all of her books.

Grace Lin's BRINGING IN THE NEW YEAR tells of a Chinese family who sweeps out the old year and brings spring-happiness poems, lanterns and celebrations in for the New Year. Lively color drawings bring to life the customs of one family's Chinese New Year celebrations.

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.

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.
MAY 2014: i have yet to meet a child that doesn't love this book. I have read it at Lunar New Year themed playgroups with children up to 9 years old. Every single child loves it and learns the basics of lunar new year from 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 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.
