Li cannot wait for Chinese New Year to come around. There's a lot to be done before Li's family can enjoy the celebrations though: the house must be swept out to brush away any bad luck, there are lanterns to light and decorations to put up, and Li still has to decide which animal of the Chinese zodiac he is going to be in the school assembly. Will he be a fierce tiger or a strong ox? Join Li and his family flying kites and watching fireworks as they welcome in the Chinese New Year.
Readers will enjoy finding each of the 12 zodiac animals on their way through the story and discover facts and activities relating to the festival at the back of the book.
This book helps children explore the way people from different cultures celebrate festivals around the world. Packed with recipes, facts, and activities, this beautifully illustrated book offers an invaluable insight into other cultures and traditions. In the classroom, it can be used to introduce students to religious festivals and ceremonies that they may not be familiar with.
