It’s Chinese New Year! We looked at sparklers, a Chinese dragon tissue box, little wooden dolls, Chinese paper cut-outs, incense, and chop sticks. We found out that most of us were born in the year of the horse or the year of the snake. Heather was the only one that was born in the year of the dragon.
For our Diversity Rocks! Challenge, We wanted to read some books by Asian American authors, so we read Crow Boy by Taro Yashima. We also read Lion Dancer by Kate Waters and Madeline Slovenz-Low to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Zan reports: I picked Crow Boy because I thought it would be a good book. I liked the paintings too. There was some Chinese writing in it.
