About this deal

Books bring out the best imaginations in children and this one does that, with lots of great fun characters to meet along the way of a fun adventure! I don't think a kid is really going to mind that either, but I will admit that I do think it takes a little bit away from the overall song-feel of the tale, which I believe was the purpose of rhyming in the first place.

Those of you wanting to use it for educational purposes may like that it has several Chinese words in the back with definition and that it explains some of the holiday. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). The way the book is written, the words don't flow the way they should and I continually have to stop and kind of re-read the words in my head and then find some sort of flow so that it fits better. This fun book will take you on a chase through a beautifully illustrated cultural holiday, leaving hints of popular traditions and decorations as the group of diverse friends follow a long red dragon tail through town, attempting to catch it at every turn.

My grandson had not really heard about the celebration of Chinese New Year, so was very interested in what they do to celebrate. Her best-selling Princess series and Albie series have each sold over a quarter of a million copies and her books are published in numerous languages all over the world. The How to Catch kids are off again, this time trying to catch a dragon as they chase him through Chinese New Year celebrations! I wouldn’t necessarily pick this as the only Chinese New Year picture book to read as I think some others summarize the main traditional parts of the celebration better, but if you are reading several you might want to consider adding this to the mix.

A little boy desperately wants to catch a dragon to guarantee health and good fortune for the New Year. Join Albie on a knightly quest in this fantastic follow up to Welcome to Alien School and How to Grow a Dinosaur.I was going to hold this off until next year at New Years, but I needed some 2019 books for this month, so I’m using it. However, I think that a lot of classes do something similar to a lunar new year mini-lesson and this will be a very popular read aloud for that purpose. He asked a lot of questions so we looked for a simple book about this celebration at the library and read it together. In addition, the artwork is very colorful, and works well with the Chinese culture that the story is representing.

What a cute little story of Chinese New Year traditions, with a fun twist of this group of kiddos setting traps to try to catch a dragon.There are How to Catch books and How to Draw books, including a BRAND NEW Draw Underwater Animals Book! With adventure around every corner, and core values of friendship, kindness and imaginative play, the Albie stories make great bedtime stories and support early years education too!

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling How to Catch series--do you have what it takes to snag a dragon? Set in China during the Spring Festival, otherwise known as Chinese New Year, the wily dragon will have to avoid trap after trap as the kids run through paper lanterns, red envelopes, fireworks, and more! It appears to take place in a Chinese area, perhaps even China, yet, there are all sorts of ethnicities present.Over a quarter of a million copies sold in the UK alone, this best-selling series is a staple in homes and schools. This outing has the kids trying to find and catch a dragon, in this story it is a dragon that is part of a celebration for "Chinese New Year" The boy and his friends desperately wants to catch a dragon to guarantee health and good fortune for the New Year. I don't really care if the last words rhyme or not; when the meter is this clumsy, it's difficult to read.
