Dragon Dance: A Chinese New Year Lift-the-Flap Book by Joan Holub, illus. by Benrei Huang, tells how Chinese families celebrate the New Year with special foods, gifts of money tucked into red envelopes for good luck, fireworks and parades with dramatic dragon puppets. The bouncy, rhyming text and large flaps on sturdy pages are just right for young children, and directions for making a dragon puppet extend the fun.
