Friday Flips: Chinese New Year related books

Two more weeks to Chinese New Year (CNY)! Are you busy spring cleaning your homes or spending time baking those delicious pineapple tarts?

For me, I’ve been trying to share as many stories on CNY as possible to Faith, as well as items related to the festival, like hong bao (red packets), lanterns and Chinese greetings.

The following are some books that I find are relevant to the festival and suitable for toddlers. They are found in our local libraries.

This is a book on numbers but provides a little information on CNY. I thought it is suitable for Faith who is learning about numbers now.

Since this his page talks about the Chinese greetings, I got Faith to work on some craft and to learn this new Chinese word.

imageThis is a complete story on the Chinese New Year and it could be pretty long for a toddler to sit through. It’s still good to read to them.

imageI don’t recall having fortune cookies as part of the CNY tradition and I only came to know about it when I was overseas for a while. This book makes me want to bake some fortune cookies too. Good to teach the different days of the week towards the end of the story.

I’m pretty sure there is a whole lot more collection of storybooks that touches on the CNY theme. Do you have any to add?
