I love the illustrations Bright and colorful and adorable I love myths and the Chinese Zodiac is no exception semi related note have adored Fruits Basket since it came out and this included everybody even the water to cross and the Cat sleeping through the feast I liked the little crafts at the end as well as the original legend And Ruby and the animals bring out a lot of Chinese New Year traditions on their trip which was fun talking to the kids about special foods dancing etcThe biggest downside is that it is rather long There are 12 animals plus Cat to include in the whole trip and that makes for a longer storybook My younger audience members were getting a little fidgety but for the most part they paid attention pretty well for three year olds Of course right after I say that it would have been fun if there had been a little differentiation of the animals maybe according to their assigned traits but of course that would make it super long for a picture book In short parts I liked and parts I didn't but overall a good one Used it for a storytime on Chinese New Year big event in our area and will probably use it again

SUMMARY Ï eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Vickie Lee

In this picture book celebrating Chinese New Year animals from the Chinese zodiac help a little girl deliver a gift to her grandmotherRuby has a special car. I was uite excited when I found this book I couldn't see many children books around focusing on the theme of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals so I thought this book would be a great opportunity to introduce 23 month old little AJ to the legend of the 12 zodiac animals and the Chinese New Year tradition Little AJ loves the bright and lively illustrations and happily pointing out all the animals in the pictures with smile But I find this book uite a disappointment The presence of the cat is a distraction and serves no purpose in the storyline apart from being the only one fallen asleep when the real celebration started Each of the animal joining the trip to visit grandma on the way but any of those animals can be easily replaced by some other animals and it won't affect the storyline at all The story doesn't say much about the traits and characters of any of those animals There is no exciting twist or turn or suspense in the storyline I find this a really boring story and an easily forgettable one I read the legend of the Chinese zodiac when I was young a really interesting story about how the 12 animals raced and competed to win a place in the Chinese zodiac calendar and how the rat used its wit and cunningness to claim itself the first spot amongst the 12 animals and henceforth forming an everlasting enmity with the cat who got cheated a place by the rat in the process It was a really memorable story and I was hoping this book would be something similar or even better But unfortunately the storyline of this book is a disappointment although we can still read a summary of the exciting legend at the end of the story I like the summary at the end of the book where it introduces each of the animal and certain characters associated with those persons born on a particular year of the animal eg those that were born in the year of rat are known to be clever curious love to eat and stay up late and have great talent for writing; whereas those from the year of horse are carefree love to travel and have fun and solve problems uickly The illustrations are awesome bright beautiful and attracted the attention of kids immediately I wish these could be accompanied by a better storyBlog review here

REVIEW Rubys Chinese New Year

Rubys Chinese New YearD to give to her grandmother for Chinese New Year But who will help her get to grandmother’s house to deliver it Will it be clever Rat strong Ox or cautio. I thoroughly enjoyed this new picture book about a young girl's adventures as she travels to visit her grandmother for Chinese New Year Along the way Ruby encounters all twelve animals in the Chinese Zodiac along with one extra guest I promise not to spoil the story by sharing the details with you Just read it for yourself to find out why I believe children will love this bookThis story is reminiscent of the well loved and treasured folk tales 'The Gingerbread Man' and 'The Little Red Hen' Rhyme rhythm and repetition are keys to a young learner's engagement with a book and this one has all three of those elementsThe illustrations by Joey Chou are colorful and vibrant I loved his choice of colors for the animals and their surroundings The small details he adds to each character and the scenes enriches the story His depiction of a Chinese New Year celebration is captivating As a bonus the author and illustrator included three craft projects for youngsters to complete There are stepped out instructions for a paper lantern paper fan and good luck banners accompanied by an illustration of each craft I would highly recommend this book for classroom teachers librarians parentsgrandparents day care providers and other adults involved in multi cultural education for young childrenI borrowed this book from the 'New Book' shelf in the children's section of the local public libraryRead my full review on my 'Reading Writing Stitch Metic' blog at
