All About Lunar New Year (Things to Make and Do)

Publisher: Scholastic

This gorgeous book not only contains Lunar New Year-themed activities and recipes, but also lots of information about the way it’s celebrated in different countries and cultures. Readers can learn about the Chinese Zodiac and the Great Race between the twelve animals, plus the legend of the monster Nian and the legend of the peach tree. Then they need to ready their scissors and pencils in order to create the many crafts. Follow step-by-step instructions and make magical lanterns, paper fireworks, fire-breathing dragons – and food! There are many delicious recipes to try – with the help of an adult, of course – including a tray of togetherness, which is an arrangement of sweet offerings to bring a sweet life. The final section of the book has pages for the reader to fill in with memories of this year’s festival and goals for the coming year.

With beautiful full-colour illustrations by Linh Nguyen, this activity book is the perfect gift for any child wanting to be creative.
