Chinese New Year

I love celebrating any holiday I can get my hands on and the awesome thing about Chinese New Year is the food! But, this is a blog about books, so here are a few that we read this week:


I grew up in California and loved taking day trips to San Francisco. Chinatown was always so busy and colorful, exactly the way this book portrays it through its brightly colored pictures. The kids enjoyed trying to find the little boy and his grandma on each page.


This book is about an immigrant from China who comes to America for a new beginning. It is set in San Francisco as well but takes place 150 years ago. It It is a true story of how the Dragon Parade celebration was first organized. There are a lot of words, but the pictures kept them asking questions.
