25 Chinese New Year Books for All AGes

 

Books to Read for Every Age During Chinese New Year

For the past three and half years, I have been teaching English as a second language to students in China through an online learning platform. As I’ve come to know my students more, I’ve fallen in love with their culture more and more. And, I love celebrating Chinese New Year along with my students. This year, Chinese New Year falls on Friday, February 12th. It changes each year because it follows the lunar calendar, so it’s pretty close to Valentine’s Day this year. I wanted to share a list of books for each age to read during the Chinese New Year season.

Here is a list of books available at bookstores and libraries in the Greater Wichita Area. All links are connected to each book’s catalog page.

**Books-a-holic won’t be listed as it is a resale store. Feel free to call our local Books-a-holic to ask if there is a copy of any of these books are available.
