What to Read Wednesday: Chinese New Year Books for Kids

The Best Chinese New Year Books for Kids

We usually do something special for Chinese New Year. My boys love Chinese food and have studied China for our homeschool support group’s International Festival. We have an uncle who lived in China for many years and has sent them photos and goodies like Chinese money and trinkets. Adding these items to the center of the table makes it festive for the holiday.

    I loved celebrating Chinese New Year with my kids. Any excuse for a party, right?

      That’s right, Michele. And for my kids–any excuse for hot tea and Chinese noodles! 🙂

    Great list of books – I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed our “trips” each month, but this month, we’re heading to China and many of the titles you mention show up on my list, too! Have a great week!
