Flashback Tuesday: Chinese New Year's Dragon by Rachel Sing illustrated by Shao Wei Liu

Happy Chinese New Year!   This year is the year of the Dragon...my favorite (can you guess why?)  I always liked the dragon the best and not because of the obvious reason.   It is the only animal symbol that is a mythical creature....not a "real" animal.  

Chinese New Year's Dragon by Rachel Sing and illustrated beautifully by Shao Wei Liu is a great way to learn about this wonderfully colorful and tradition filled holiday.   There is a mix of story, fantasy and family customs that I truly enjoyed.   This is a sweet classic story to settle down and read with your children at this festive time of year.   Happy New Year!
