Book Description from Back Cover

It's Chinese New Year and there are so many fun things to do-shop at the outdoor market for fresh flowers, eat New Years dinner with the whole family, receive red envelopes from Grandma and Grandpa, and best of the spectacular New Year's parade! Lift the flaps to see all of the special things you can do to celebrate this festive holiday.

Comments from Back Cover

"A Chinese New Year Lift-the-Flap Book by Joan Holub, illus. by Benrei Huang, tells how Chinese families celebrate the New Year with special foods, gifts of money tucked into red envelopes for good luck, fireworks and parades with dramatic dragon puppets. The bouncy, rhyming text and large flaps on sturdy pages are just right for young children, and directions for making a dragon puppet extend the fun."

Background on Joan Holub

The following is from the author's website -
I graduated from college in Texas, then freelanced as an Art Director at a graphic design firm for 8 years. I dreamed of working in children's books, so I moved to New York City and became Associate Art Director at Scholastic, where I designed books for children and worked with editors and illustrators.

I illustrated my first published children's book in 1992 and soon began illustrating full time. I began completing manuscripts and mailing them out to publishers in the early 1990s. In 1996, I sold my first two manuscripts -- Boo Who? A Spooky Lift-the-Flap Book (Scholastic) and Pen Pals (Grosset & Dunlap). Yippee!

Now I write full time and have authored and/or illustrated over 120 children's books. Creating books that entertain, inform, and interest children (and me, too) is a fabulous job!
