Brief summary: PoPo comes to visit her Chinese-American granddaughter to teach the little girl about Chinese New Year. The child learns the rules to prepare for a lucky year which means preparing for fifteen days and also celebrating for fifteen days.
Comments: Chinese New Year’s rules are written on the top or bottom of the pages as the story unfolds. I learned many superstitions and traditions about the new year I was not aware of before reading this picture book. Each ritual’s symbolism is explained by the PoPo. The story is written with light humor as the little girl learns about the holiday’s customs. This is a great addition to any elementary library’s holiday and customs section.
