Format: Paperback
I found this colorful book to be informative, engaging, and easy-to-use. The author's overview of Chinese New Year provides a good background for her description of significant Lunar New Year traditions. These customs include special food, lucky money, scrolls, candy, lanterns, and dragons. There is a nice presentation of the zodiac animals and chart of corresponding birthdate years. The author provides easy-to-follow instructions and simple templates to carry out the wide selection of craft projects and activities. I would highly recommend this book to elementary school teachers and families with elementary school age kids in helping to understand and celebrate Chinese New Year.

Format: Paperback
This book offers fun, cute and easy to reproduce crafts to supplement Chinese New Year events for the classroom or any other setting with young children. I especially appreciate the author's narrative on explaining the traditions and rituals associated with this annual holiday that is celebrated world-wide. We couldn't wait for the next Chinese New Year (Year of the Rooster -2005) so, my kids and I tried making the hexagonal candy boxes. The instructions are clearly written making it easy for both a seven y.o. and ten y.o to follow independently. My kids are now using their crafty boxes with lids to hold little items on their desks. "Celebrating Chinese New Year: An Activity Book" is a wonderful addition to any classroom, library, and Asian or multi-cultural book collection. I highly recommend for teachers/educators and parents.

"Celebrating Chinese New Year: An Activity Book" is an engaging tool for introducing a lively yet generally unfamiliar cultural event to children. Clear, child-oriented information about Chinese New Year customs is interspersed with charming hands-on projects, from paper plate pandas to candy containers. Straightforward graphics and text richly convey that a spirit of family closeness and a respect for tradition mark this holiday. Through a range of activities, from simple to sophisticated, a poignant awareness of an earlier time and way of thought is also transmitted. An excellent resource for schools and groups that want to foster cultural understanding!

While working at a daycare, I was searching for ways to break up the monotony of winter for our school aged children. Celebrating the Chinese New Year seemed like an obvious choice except for one problem - I know very little about the Chinese New Year and Chinese culture. So, I went to Amazon after not being able to find any suitable references at the local book store. I found this book which had gotten pretty good reviews.

The book is a great reference with wonderful craft ideas. The children especially enjoyed making the drum noise makers.

I was disappointed by this book. Every year I host a chinese new year party and I am always looking for some more ideas so I ordered this book. I was hoping for an idea or two. There is not
much at all to this book just a couple of pages maybe 20 total. There is little "substance" to this book. I bought this book for $8.95. The price tag should have been $2.95. Live and learn I suppose.

I have purchased a number of books about Chinese new year
celebrations and customs, this one has excellent craft
ideas and is geared toward older children - a very nice
presentation with good information.

Easy read, interesting facts for any parent or pre-K, or elementary teacher to use in classroom lesson re: Chinese New Year. I shared this book with my son's OT, (Occupational Therapist), and she used some of the activities with her clients. We also shared this book with a group of moms at an Integrated Play Group, (Cross-aged peers, Typically Developing and Special Needs kids). Great book!
