I used the book on Chinese New Year to help my KR students have some knowledge about Chinese culture and the New Years Celebration. The photograph showed real children as they prepared and celebrated Chinese New Year. The text was simple yet provided enough information for these youngstudents.
Used as a resource for the Chinese New Year celebration at my son's pre-k class. It was useful, age appropriate, a good introduction to the topic. I did end-up combined using several books as none had all the things I wanted to cover.
Every major aspect of the holiday is clearly and concisely illustrated. However, one little thing I have a problem with is that the photos are very old-fashioned, almost like 20 years ago. So, with that in mind, I gave it 4 stars.
