Narrator Elizabeth Pan's unique voice and authentic pronunciation are a perfect fit for this lively introduction to Chinese New Year traditions. The story's young protagonist, Alex, joyfully shares her enthusiasm for this important holiday with her friend, Ethan, whom she invites to participate in the New Year festivities. As the children eagerly join the family's preparations, listeners learn about customs that bring good fortune and details of the grand banquet of traditional foods and their special meanings. Alex's favorite moment, the lantern festival, brings this charming story, and the holiday, to a magical ending. Pan's narrative style is animated and engaging, and she gives a delightful presentation of Chinese New Year expressions (with pronunciation help and English translations) in the back matter.
