It's almost Lunar New Year! Xiao Mi, Hang, Kwan, Malai and Charu all celebrate the New Year in their own special way. Experience how each one of the Chinese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese and Indian children and their families honor Lunar New Year, from dragon dances in China to firecrackers.
Our Lunar New Year is a unique children’s book by Yobe Qiu. It showcases a diverse cast of characters. These multi-cultural families observe the Lunar New Year in their own special ways.
For the Chinese Spring Festival (Chun Jie) Xiao Mi and her family gather together to eat a special meal of extra-luck fish, and that night they watch a Dragon Dance and fireworks show.
In Vietnam, Hang and her family celebrate the Vietnamese New Year (Têt) with drums and bells, watching a Lion Dance, and visiting the temple before eating and watching fireworks.
The book also features families celebrating Seollal (Korean), Songkran (Thai), and Diwali (Indian) in their own customary ways. The colorful, detailed illustrations add so much to the learning experience.
I love the diversity in this book, displaying the celebratory practices of people from different backgrounds. What a wonderful way to educate young readers about the beauty of diversity.
