Celebrate Chinese New Year!

Make crafts and enjoy special Chinese treats on Saturday, January 25th, 1-3 pm, as we enter the Year of the Rat! Heidi Goodman, illustrator of Mei-Mei's Lucky Birthday Noodles, and Janis Herbert, author of Marco Polo for Kids (both Face in a Book booksellers) will be on-hand to lead the fun!

Mei-Mei is Chinese - but not Mom and Dad! When she was a baby, they flew all the way to the other side of the world to adopt her and bring her home. Lucky for Mei-Mei, her parents want her to know all about her Chinese roots. That's why, on her birthday, there are always special Chinese treats - long noodles, for a long and happy life. And this year, Mei-Mei is finally big enough to help Mom make them!

Marco Polo's journey from Venice to China and back again takes him by caravan over vast deserts, across the highest mountain ranges, and to exotic cities and humble villages. Woven through this tale are activities that highlight the diverse cultures Marco Polo encountered along the way.

Gong hei fat choy!
