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.
