Tomorrow is New Year's Day
Not everyone celebrates the new year the same way. Some celebrations are based on the lunar calendar, and Korean families observe Seollal, the Korean New Year. This informative story uses simple illustrations, highlights Korean terms and phrases, and offers readers a new perspective by explaining aspects of Korean traditions and culture. In an elementary classroom, this book about diversity may invite students to make connections to their own family traditions. It may segue into a unit on cultural backgrounds or be used to explore Canada’s rich multicultural heritage.
