Long-Long’s New Year: A Story About The Chinese Spring Festival

In this beautifully illustrated picture book, a little Chinese boy named Long-Long accompanies his grandfather into the city to sell cabbages in order to buy food and decorations for the New Year. Selling cabbages is harder than Long-Long expects, and he encounters many adventures before he finds a way to help his grandfather, and earn New Year’s treats for his mother and little cousin. The stunning, authentic illustrations-by a talented Chinese artist-capture the look of everyday life in rural China. Combined with the charming story of Long-Long’s trip to the city, they offer a unique introduction to Chinese culture. Includes a glossary of Chinese terms.
