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.

I bought this book after reading all the reviews here. I do not like this book so much that I almost wanted to return it. I did not like the book for the following reasons: 1. This is NOT a gender neutral book. The main character of the book is a girl and on one of the pages, it stated that she put on her new dress. It went on and talked about her sisters. I normally like to get gender neutral book or boys book so that my two boys can relate to the books. 2. The traditions mentioned in the book is not universal such as eating dumplings. 3. It failed to mention one of the most universal Chinese New Year traditions which is obtaining red packet of money!!! 4. The Lion dance was only on one page - which is the main reason I bought the book - and it did not explain / describe much of the lion dance tradition.
I could not return it immediately because my son get to the amazon box before me and I just could not take it away from him.

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)

the world is a classroom. I try to pick books that teach my children something at the end of the day and I love a good multi cultural book so I love grace lin. the art work alone is adorable and fun to look at but the stories are fun and informative.

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!
