Preparing for the Chinese New Year!

The Chinese Near Year stars on January 23rd, which is next week!  We have this lovely picture book, New Clothes for New Year's Day, all about a new start for New Years, starting with new clothes.  Here is the description of the book from the Usborne website:
The New Year is the start of everything new...Follow a young Korean girl as she dresses and prepares for celebrating the Lunar New Year.

A New Year, a new day, a new morning.
New clothes.
We start the year with new things.
New things, for the year-older me.
And speaking of new clothes, don't forget about our new, fun Fashion Dolls... we have one from China!

Or, how about an Usborne First Reading selection retelling the story of the Monkey King?
Meet Monkey - king of the monkeys and the cleverest, naughtiest animal in China. He won't obey anyone, not even the Emperor of Heaven. But when Monkey steals a crop of magic peaches, he finally goes too far …

2012 is the Year of the Dragon, so... we definitely have you covered there!
Dragons Lift-the-Flap
Stories of Dragons
That's Not My Dragon

Happy Chinese New Year!
