Genre: informational/folk taleReview: This is a great book of information on the Chinese New Year. It includes descriptions of all of the festivals and traditions that are celebrated with the New Year. Also it tells some of the old folk tales which correlate with the traditions.

Written with special care by best-selling cookbook author Nina Simonds along with a vice president of The Children's Museum, Boston, the elegant book sparkles with authenticity and grace. The myths offer intrigue, festival explanations provide riveting detail, and the how-to projects encourage hands-on participation to make the core material come alive.
