Chinese New Year is just around the corner with its many traditions, rituals and legends. The Spring Festival might be a confusing time of the year for children, especially for those more familiar with Western holidays. Why is the Spring Festival celebrated? What are all the red envelopes for? Why are people setting off noisy firecrackers? 

Bérénice Zandonai's bilingual picture book I am Chinese Festival answers these very questions with the help of poems, fun facts and colorful illustrations. The book, published by China Intercontinental Press, explains the origins and customs of 12 traditional Chinese festivals in both English and Chinese. The reader gets to follow the adventures of the book's little protagonist as she travels through the landscapes of all the different festivals.

'I am Chinese Festival' is the Ultimate Illustrated China Guide for Kids

In addition to Chinese New Year, the book also introduces traditional celebrations such as the Mid-Autumn, Dragon Boat and Lantern Festivals. The language is simple and the descriptions are easy for kids to understand. Each section of the book starts with a short poem about a festival, and the next pages are dedicated to describing the celebration in more detail through informative 'Knowledge Link' paragraphs. Common traditions are also illustrated along with their English and Chinese names. 

The beautiful illustrations are the real gems in this book. Vibrant drawings of dragons, magpies, the Nian monster, the moon rabbit and many other animals and festival symbols fill the pages, creating a truly magical reading experience.

With its fun and captivating format, the book is a great way for kids to learn and get excited about Chinese culture and traditions. It also helps children and adults alike familiarize themselves with Mandarin characters and their pronunciations. Readers can scan a QR code on the back of the book to listen to both its Chinese and English audio versions.
