Another great book illustrated by Jason Chin. This children's book explains about the Chinese New Year and some of the traditions that take place during the 15 day celebration. Traditons such as giving treats the the Kitchen God to bring good luck, and creating noise and lightning fireworks to scare of the evil spirits during the new year. I liked how this book gave brief but descriptive explanations of a holiday that many children may not be familiar with. Plus Chin's illustations always bring the story to life through his creative outlook on the story.
