Synopsis

Western and Chinese New Year's Celebrations by Elizabeth A. Dice

Despite the numerous cultural and religious differences among countries, one universally common occurrence is the transition from one year to the next. Although cultures commemorate the event in varying ways, the New Year is generally a time to honor the past and prepare for a hopeful future. Western and Chinese New Year's Celebrations focuses on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day - the two-day public holiday that is probably the most widely celebrated holiday in the world - and Chinese New Year, which is celebrated by more than 1 billion people every year. Unique New Year's traditions and customs can also be found in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America, and Oceania.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East
