Kun Hei Fat Choy!*

We’re headed to a party to celebrate the new year of the tiger-isn’t that a good idea?  We’re bringing takeout dumplings and two tangerines.  I got the tangerine idea from one of my favorite kids’ books, Children Just Like Me: Celebrations.  It tells about different holidays from around the world by profiling different kids.  We’ve also got the original Children Just Like Me.   That one, I think, is particularly awesome, because it shows how different the children are, and how similar:  you know, each kid talks about his/her favorite food, school, house, and family.

Okay, everyone else has their coats on–yikes.
