#Review: Dragon Dance A Chinese New Year by Joan Holub / Illustrated by Benrei Huang #Multicultural, #Kidsbooks, #Holidays
It's Chinese New Year and there are so many fun things to do! Shopping at the outdoor market for fresh flowers, eating New Year's dinner with the whole family, receiving red envelopes from Grandma and Grandpa, and best of all-watching the spectacular Chinese New Year's parade! Introduce the customs of Chinese New Year to even the youngest readers with this festive new lift-the-flap book.
Happy Chinese New Year!
I absolutely adored this cute lift-the-flap book. The book drew me in from the very first page. Joy and laughter is throughout the pages as the characters celebrate the Chinese New Year Holiday. The kids in the book express enchantment as they discover items given by family and friends. That same excitement is revealed to the reader as each pages flap shows another hidden discovery.
The illustrations were done beautifully in bold pictures and colors. Traditional colors are discussed in the book and is evident in the illustrators pictures.
Finally, if that was not enough, the poetry by the author is simple as you would expect from a mostly picture book but it is also done well as I would expect from this author.
Go get a copy of this book for your own collections and celebrate the Chinese New Year together. 5 stars!
