AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set in snowy rural Northern China this book is about the coming Chinese New Year Spring Festival and one little boy who is told that he’s too small to help out at the Spring Festival. Follow him through his village to see how he finds a way to join in! It’s a very big surprise. The very traditional life depicted in this book, with people wearing thick clothing and where beds are often platforms that are built over small wood-fired furnaces remain the same today.'
