Celebrate Chinese New Year - My father's childhood stories C05-073

 

 

Description: This beautiful book tells the story from a young boy's prospective what celebrating Chinese New Year was like for a poor family living in the rural countryside. The story starts with the boy riding on the bus with his mother and sister to the city to buy Chinese New Year treats. And while the family's dinner table lacked fine foods such roast duck or delicious apples, the children had new clothes hand made by their mother. He waited anxiously in the kitchen for his mother's Chinese New Year special dishes. The young boy remembered playing with his friends out in the snow, as well as the many family and traditional customs during the Chinese new year. As with the other books in this series, while life on the farm was harsh and poor, it was also simple, happy, and full of hope.
This is a hardcover book with 22 pages, 8.75" x 10.50".

Chinese children's book for age: 5+

Usually ships within two business days.
