Chinese New Year

Did anyone wish you Happy Chinese New Year today?
Reading Fortune Cookie Fortunes by author/illustrator Grace Lin is one way to celebrate!
This bright and happy book centers on family and is a good choice to introduce a fun new food experience. What is a "fortune"? Do they really come true? How do they get those pieces of paper inside a cookie to begin with?
Lots of questions to stir up a discussion about Chinese tradition and culture. Hungry for more? Check out other Grace Lin titles at your local booksellers and libraries.

Cooking Extension Idea:
Check out this fun recipe you can make with your little ones after reading Fortune Cookie Fortunes.
