Holidays for Children: Chinese New Year
Type of Product:
Chinatown erupts with the noise of drums and firecrackers, and the beauty of vibrant colors during the celebration of the Chinese New Year. The most important and popular of all Chinese festivals, the ideas of communal awareness and starting anew are taught by honoring Tsun Kwan, the god of the hearth, and the festival of the dragon. A zodiac quiz and a traditional Chinese folktale show how traditions have remained constant over centuries, while a Chinese dragon-making project invites children to discover their own creativity. Part of the multivolume Holidays for Children DVD Series. Includes public performance rights. 23 minutes. Closed-Captioned.
