This is a nonfiction book aimed at the preK-K level, and it contains just the right amount of information for kids aged 3-5. The illustrations are lovely and there is simple text on each page. I paired this book along with Dragon Dance (author: Holub) and D is for Dragon Dance (author: Compestine), which have more lyrical text, for a preschoolers' storytime about Chinese New Year.
I really like this series. Students can read these books on their own and get a lot out of them. They can also be easily read for a read aloud. They are fun and interesting!
We read our son (28 months) at least 3 books before bed every night ... so to keep my husband and I from getting bored, I buy books by season and holiday - no matter what holiday. This was one of the ones we purchased for February. It was lovely; simple prose and easy to understand. We also recomend: Round like a Mooncake and Red is a Dragon, http://www..com/Red-Dragon-Colors-Roseanne-Thong/dp/0811864812.
Our 4-year-old daughter LOVES the lift-the-flap pages of this book - - and already "reads" along with us!
We used this book to learn about the Chinese New Year. It taught us and it was a delightful story. We then made paper lanterns.
