    1. This fascinating nonfiction book tells young readers about Chinese New Year by showing how one family in New York City’s Chinatown celebrates this special holiday. With awesome color photographs and a simple narrative style, the author of Sarah Morton’s Day: A Day in the Life of a Pilgrim Girl takes kids through the special day by following Ernie Wan, who has the exciting honor of performing his first Lion Dance on the city streets. While this book was written in 1990, the pictures aren’t [...]

    2. This story is a non-fiction account of a young boy who lives in Chinatown in New York. Through photographs, we get to see what his neighborhood is like, including the streets and his Chinese school. Readers get a glimpse at his father’s kung fu school and also what it is like to practice and be a part of the Chinese New Year celebration. It describes the customs behind the clothing and food that are used and discusses the Buddhist religionist ceremonies as well. The book concludes with a look [...]

    3. This non-fiction book gives a realistic view into a modern day celebration of the Chinese New Year. This story intrigues children because it provides an informative plot with a use of language that is age-appropriate that entices students to think, question and reconsider the world around them. The characters are one hundred percent realistic and therefore convincing. The illustrations correspond to both the text and the setting, plot, and characters; and hold interest to the reader, which enhan [...]

    4. This was the next discard I handled this morning. (Why the east-Asian focus this morning I have no clue.) I found it adorable and true, though the pinyin happy new year must be a different way from how I've learned it since I drew a total blank looking at that. (Possibly it was Cantonese instead of Mandarin?)INDEED GOOGLE SAYS: "The most common Chinese ways of saying Happy New Year are Gong Xi Fa Cai (Mandarin) and Gong Hey Fat Choy (Cantonese). Even though the pronunciations are a little differ [...]

    5. This is a children's book about a young boy in New York City who is learning to participate in an ancient Chinese cultural tradition. It is illustrated with lots of photographs, and I believe it is based on real people.I have read this to my daughter dozens of times. She is now five years old and still requests it frequently. It is undoubtedly her favorite book. It never gets old. To me it seems quite serviceable, but I give it five stars because my daughter holds it in such high regard. She is [...]

    6. This is a great non fiction book about the Chinese New Year. It is all about a little boy who is performing the Lion dance on Chinese New Year. It shows boy practicing, getting ready for the parade, during the parade and what is celebrated on Chinese New Year. I think this is a great book to read to learn about the Chinese New Year and the Lion Dance. It also shows the excitement that Eric feels about performing in the Lion Dance. I really enjoyed it because of the photographs. They were colorfu [...]

    7. I put this book in my Art shelf because there are opportunities to create Chinese New Year traditional decorations. Also, instead of illustrations there is photography. This book is about what an average family does living in Chinatown during the Chinese New Year. It is a day in the life of an elementary aged student and how he gets ready for the Holiday. This book is great for ESOL students and Social Studies because of the cultural elements.

    8. The colors and pictures in this book are beautiful. I just want to look at the pictures. My first book like this was called Empty Pot with a little boy on a mission. This is a fun book with a nice story of a little boy doing his first performance in New York. Colorful decorations and the clothes are different from what they wear now.

    9. what is going on at Chinatown on Chinese New Year Day? Dragon Dance. Firecrackers. Colorful decorations and clothes. Delicious food. Red lucky money envelopes. Well, Ernie Wan will tell his readers what life if like for a Chinese boy on a day such as this. The readers will get a glimpse of his private life through the wonderful medium of photographs.

    10. Gives children a look at a Chinese-American boy's first lion dance during Chinese New Year. Shares some of the traditions associated with the holiday. Chinese calendar of the 12 animals in back which the students enjoyed hearing about.

    11. This wasn't my favorite non-fiction book. It seemed extremely dated and although the author made an attempt to make it realateable by following one particular child and his traditional New Year. The text just fell flat and I don't think it has much kid appeal.

    12. Informational picture book about Chinese New Year as seen through the eyes of young Ernie Wan. Dry, but interesting. Fun photosemes: China Town, Chinese New Year, dance, family, Lion Dance, New York City

    13. A story of a young boy and the dance he gets to do for the Chinese new year. Good multiculturalism, fun way to introduce new ideas

    14. Perfect for learning about Chinese New Year traditions. (Great for ELD school library has it in big book format.) Would pair nicely with the fictional story Sam and the Lucky Money.
