February 19th just so happens to be Chinese New Year  this year and Just Another Mom wants to help you celebrate Chinese New Year! Really, it’s Chinese Lunar New Year and this year is the Year of the Sheep (or Ram). I have 10 fun and tasty recipes for you and your family to try, a book list to scan, and a free mini printable pack! If you’re looking for more ideas to celebrate Chinese New Year, I’m also sharing the link to my Pinterest board. When we lived in California, celebrating Chinese New Year meant going to the parade in Chinatown in Oakland. Lately I’ve been watching videos on YouTube to help me get my parade fix (I love the lion dances) and one year I hope to make it down to NYC to see the parade there.

Books for Chinese New Year

The books on this list are mostly about celebrating Chinese New Year but this is also a great time to talk about China. We do plan to cover various countries in both Sweet B’s afterschooling and in Tot School/Home preschool with Squeaker so we’ll have an expanded list of activities, crafts, and books to learn about the culture and history of China in another post. For now, I’d like to share this book list with you:
