Spring 1 - Why do people celebrate Chinese New Year? - The Magic Paintbrush Julia Donaldson
This is a beautiful book about a kind little village girl called Shen. When the greedy emperor hears about Shen's magic brush, all he can think about is gold. Shen, however, is determined to only paint food for the hungry and clothes for the needy.
We have enjoyed learning about China and Chinese traditions. We have painted chinese numbers, tasted chinese foods, sang chinese songs and made chinese dragons.
