Shop this article on Amazon The Year of the Sheep by Oliver Chin Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas by Natasha Yim February 19th marks the Lunar New Year and the year of the sheep, which may also be depicted as the goat or ram. The holiday lasts until March 5th this year and is a time of traditions; red envelopes of lucky money, paper dragons, and firecrackers are part of the festivities, but the Lunar New Year is focused on being with family and what better way to come together than around stories. Here are a handful of books for kids that I like for the upcoming holiday: The Year of the Sheep, the latest in the Tales of the Chinese Zodiac picture book series, introduces a sheep named Sydney who demonstrates the valuable characteristics of those born under this sign: kindness, cooperation, and creativity. Ages 4-8 Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas is a fun re-telling of the Golidlocks story, with a Lunar New Year twist.
