Product Details


“A lovely, surprisingly comprehensive entry into colors and the holiday.”—Publishers Weekly

“This simple and beautiful color concept book features large monochromatic watercolor paintings of items commonly used to celebrate Chinese New Year. The eye-catching text is limited to the name of the color in English and Chinese (both in characters and pinyin translation). With one color featured on each spread, the effect is quite striking. . . . The simplicity of the design and concept means even the youngest readers will enjoy this one; it’s also a fun and easy vocabulary lesson for older readers who do not already speak Mandarin.” —School Library Journal

“Chinese New Year gets a daring new look. . . . Lo makes sure that no flower, leaf, or curly twirl of its details is omitted. The objects seem to pop due to the skilled shading and tricks of perspective. . . . Bright and bold, this will certainly catch the eye of every reader.”—Kirkus Reviews

“From exploding red firecrackers to sweet brown peanut puffs, this festive book presents all the delights of the Chinese New Year. It takes a simple approach, aiming to teach children about the holiday as well as about color words in both English and Chinese. . . . but children will enjoy the vivid pictures of dragons, lucky fish, and more.”Booklist
