8th February

No birthday again. So I thought I'd look at some resources that can be used in early childhood settings in conjunction with Chinese New Year. Grace Lin and Roseanne Thong have come up with the perfect books. Roseanne Thong lives in Hong Kong and was looking for resources to use with her students and couldn't find what she wanted so she wrote her own which have been illustrated beautifully by Chinese-American Grace Lin. Grace also has books of her own that she has both written and illustrated. Her illustrations are large, bright and joyous.
Look for these by Grace Lin:
• Fortune Cookie Fortunes
• Kite Flying
• Dim Sum for Everyone!
• Bringing in the New Year
and these by Roseanne Thong and Grace Lin
• Round is a Mooncake
• One is a Drummer
• Red is a Dragon
