Bringing in the New Year
This January, ICAN’s Audio Book Tour features Grace Lin’s Bringing in the New Year, Thursday, January 19th at 5:00PM Pacific. With a rebroadcast on Lunar New Year, Sunday, January 22nd at 8am.
This exuberant story follows a Chinese American family as they prepare for the Lunar New Year. Each member of the family lends a hand as they sweep out the dust of the old year, hang decorations, and make dumplings. Then it’s time to put on new clothes and celebrate with family and friends. There will be fireworks and lion dancers, shining lanterns, and a great, long dragon parade to help bring in the Lunar New Year. And the dragon parade in our book is extra long–on a surprise fold-out page at the end of the story. Grace Lin’s artwork is a bright and gloriously patterned celebration in itself! And her story is tailor-made for reading aloud.Penguin Random House
