My First Chinese New Year
By

Rating

Product Description:

PreS-K. This very simple introduction to the Chinese New Year focuses on food, families, and customs. Bright, cheerful collage and mixed media-illustrations work well with the narrative, but a few crowd the pages and spill into the gutter. Chinese lettering would have added an authentic flavour to signs and banners. Still, the brief, informative text is well suited for preschool holiday and multicultural units. Linda Perkins

About the Author

Karen Katz has written and illustrated many books for children, including The Colors of Us, Can You Say Peace, My First Ramadan, Counting Kisses and Where is Baby's Belly Button. Long inspired by folk art from around the world, she was inspired to write her first book, Over the Moon, when she and her husband adopted their daughter from Guatemala, and she wanted to tell the story of welcoming Lena into their lives. Katz loves to paint and experiment with texture, color, collage and pattern. Besides an author and illustrator, she has been a costume designer, quilt maker, fabric artist and graphic designer. Katz and her family divide their time between New York City and Saugerties, New York.
