Maia has been asking to celebrate the Chinese New Year so we've been reading stories and looking into customs and ideas. She wants to make dumplings! This is not something I've ever tried, so this'll be interesting. Any tips? Simple recipes? I found this one, but don't know if I should trust a recipe on About.com.
Oh, and Chinese New Year falls on Valentine's Day this year! And this is the year of the tiger. According to this site, that means that everything will happen on a big, bold scale this year.
Here's some more info I've found:
Dim Sum, Bagels, and Crawfish has a list of children's books to read about celebrating the Chinese New Year.
Any other resources? I don't know much about this.
