Picture Book Launch Event for Two New Years
Join Books of Wonder for this Brilliant Picture Book Launch!
Books of Wonder is so excited to host the launch for Two New Years by Richard Ho and Lynn Scurfield! Two New Years is a warm read that encourages readers to learn about cultures different from their own — from Jewish readers learning about Lunar New Year, to Chinese readers learning about Rosh Hashanah, to readers from other cultures being invited to experience both! Be sure to join us for this joyous tale!
In Two New Years, for this multicultural family, inspired by the author’s own, two New Years mean twice as much to celebrate! In the fall, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, offers an opportunity to bake challah, dip apples in honey, and lift voices in song. In the spring, Lunar New Year brings a chance to eat dumplings, watch dragon dances, and release glowing lanterns that light up the sky.
With bright, joyful prose and luminous illustrations, Richard Ho and Lynn Scurfield invite readers of all backgrounds to experience the beauty of two New Year traditions, paying homage to the practices that make each unique while illuminating the values of abundance, family, and hope that they share.
Full of opportunities to reflect on the rich blends of cultures and traditions in our lives, this moving picture book is a beautiful reminder that, at heart, our celebrations might not be so different after all.
*One book may be brought from home to be signed for every book purchased at the event.
Sunday, August 6th at 4PM EST at Our 17th St Store!
