Sam must decide how to spend the lucky money he’s received for Chinese New Year.
This story about what a boy chooses to do with his lucky money he received from Chinese New Year is heartwarming. The overall message was great, with Sam realizing how lucky he is and wanting to help another. This book does have a little more text per page, so I’d recommend it for slightly older children who like to sit still for a little bit longer stories. :)
The calligraphy on the back cover represents the Chinese characters for “Lucky Money.”
The illustrators added this element to the cover because Chinese reads from right to left, and books written in Chinese open in this direction.
