Reviews for Paper Crafts for Chinese New Year

School Library Journal Reviews 2008 June

Gr 1-3-- Each of these titles describes the history and traditions associated with these holidays, and then presents eight related crafts. Chinese New Year includes instructions for dancing dragon puppets, red gift envelopes, and Chinese lanterns; Day of the Dead gives directions for making paper marigolds, skull masks, skeletons, and window banners. The crafts contain materials lists and color photos of the steps and of the finished product. The directions are easy to follow, and enlargeable patterns are provided. These titles would make good additions to collections in need of cultural materials.--G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI
