This one is really lovely, so lovely that Imogen wanted to take it to school to show her teacher which we did yesterday - her teacher hadn't seen it and thought it was lovely and used it at story time with the children.
The book is Dragon Dance A Chinese New Year lift-the-flap book by Joan Holub. A very colourful book that tells you all about the new year festivals, the food, the dances, and at the back is a craft activity for making dragon puppets.
It's a lovely book, easy to read in a rhyming style. Imogen has sat and read this to me and to herself several times. They've also been doing a dragon dance at school which we go and see when they finish for half term. Hopefully this weekend (weather permitting) we shall be going to a Chinese New Year festival in the city where there is a Chinese market, food, activities, martial arts displays and a dragon dance and parade.
Imogen has enjoyed saying Gung Hay Fat Choy too!
They are then moving on to look at India and the festival of Holi, a festival of colour which should be great fun, her hands and arms were certainly colourful today when I picked her up from school!
