Parents will certainly chuckle along with this one, but kindergarten teachers’ stomach muscles will ache: “[G]ravity works differently here.

In this one, the story centers on kids trying to catch the Chinese New Year's dragon and learning that family and friends stick with one another through thick and thin.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

Gathering up his friends, who help hang lanterns every year, he chases a long red tail through his festively decorated village.

I don't think a kid is really going to mind that either, but I will admit that I do think it takes a little bit away from the overall song-feel of the tale, which I believe was the purpose of rhyming in the first place. I'm not understanding why this Chinese New Year seems to be set in the past, a pre-technology kind of feel surrounds the whole book, which wouldn't really be a problem if they book didn't include a whole bunch of characters of different diversities. The first review will be my (not-so-tiny) munchkin's perspective and then I will chime in with my 2 cents. It appears to take place in a Chinese area, perhaps even China, yet, there are all sorts of ethnicities present.

With very mild peril that is quickly resolved, and friendly mythical creatures, this book is great fun! Despite a series of cleverly planned traps, the children never manage to catch the dragon they were hunting. It's got a lovely nod to Dragons Love Tacos as well, which is one of the greatest children's books ever written so that's nice.A cool added tidbit is in the back of the book, all of the text is translated side by side in Chinese. This one though, was set in what seems like China, and yet the ethnicity of the characters seem varied. In addition, the artwork is very colorful, and works well with the Chinese culture that the story is representing.
