The Chinese New year is celebrated in the Spring for new planting and fresh beginnings. Chinese New Year customs include sweeping and dusting, paying off debts, cooking traditional foods that have meanings, popping fireworks and receiving gifts, and there are lion dances. It is an informational book on the Chinese celebration that could be used to show the differences between the American New Year and the Chinese New Year. It could be used around the New Year or it could be used with an American New Year book when teaching a lesson on comparing and contrasting.
