Celebrated by more than 2 billion people around the world, this ultimate guide to the Lunar New Year, by author Kevin Tsang and illustrator Linh Nguyen, has everything you need (and more) to join in this year’s celebrations.
With an eye-catching red and gold cover embodying the colours of the festival, this book is full of fascinating facts and engaging stories that recount the myths and legends behind this worldwide festival.
There are plenty of crafts for busy little fingers – such as making your own fire-breathing dragons, slithering snakes and swinging monkeys! And plenty of traditional sweet and savoury recipes to try out – families can even put together a ‘tray of togetherness’ with selected foods signifying family unity, happiness, good health and other well wishes for the coming year.
Learn how the lunisolar calendar works, find your Chinese Zodiac animal and use the blank journal pages at the back of the book to record your own experiences of the Lunar New Year!
This is a fantastic go-to guide for anyone wishing to lean more about the most important annual celebration in many East Asian and Southeast Asian countries!
