Hiss! Pop! Boom!
Celebrating Chinese New Year
By Tricia Morrissey; Calligraphy by Kong Lee
Hiss! Pop! Boom! Chinese New Year explodes with sparkling firecrackers, dancing lions and sticky dumplings. Classical Chinese brush paintings beautifully illustrate the traditions of this special family celebration. Clear and rhythmic text invites children and parents to read together as they enjoy and share their own family traditions.
