Happy Chinese New Year!


As I mentioned earlier, I am in Texas for a week of schools visits, so I am a bit belated with the Chinese New Year wishes. Please visit Elaine's excellent post for Chinese New Year book suggestions (including my new favorite, The Pet Dragon). To make up for it, I plan on watching Gund Kwok's lion and dragon troupe will perform in Boston when I get back (on Feb. 1st around 10 or 10:30 a.m. at the main stage on Beach Street). It's the country's first and only all Asian-women's Lion and Dance troupe and they're based in Boston. I received an e-mail from one of the members inviting me, and I admit to be extremely intrigued. Doesn't it sound like a great idea for a children's book? It just seems like there should be something there. Anyone suggestions?

Or maybe it's just a good idea for a new hobby!

Happy New Year Grace! I've been reading your new book with our preschool and pre-K students and they love it! I even have a Lion that I've brought with me from HK so they all tried it on!

Grace,

Your link to my post at Wild Rose Reader is incorrect. I fixed the one you posted at BRG.

Happy New Year--and see you soon!

Hi Amy--are you Amy from Hong Kong? How are you doing? I hope you are doing great. I have the best memories of my visit there, it really was one the best trips I ever had.

Thanks for using my books and so glad the students enjoy my books.

Elaine, I changed the link! Thanks for catching that.
