In a brightly colored board book, perfect  for the youngest child, Newbery Honoree Grace Lin tells the tale of a Chinese American family as they prepare for the Lunar New Year. Each family member lends a hand as they sweep out the dust of the old year, hang decorations, and make dumplings. Then it''s time to celebrate. There will be fireworks and lion dancers, shining lanterns, and a great, long dragon parade at the end!

Lin''s bold and gloriously patterned artwork makes for an unforgettable holiday tale. Her story is simple and tailor-made for reading aloud to young children, and she includes an informative author''s note for parents, teachers and children who want to learn even more.
