Whether or not you culturally celebrate Chinese New Year, reading children's books about Chinese New Year can open your children's eyes (and yours!) to the amazing culture and traditions that are a part of this holiday that is so special to so many. In fact, as you learn more, you may just feel inspired to celebrate (even a little) in your own home this year, whether that be with the food (dumplings, noodles and rice cakes! oh my!), red envelopes filled with money, or giving everything a good new year's cleaning. In preparation for Chinese New Year this year, we've been reading a lot of books about Chinese New Year, and these are some of our favorites—we hope you enjoy the stories as well as the education!
