Happy lunar new year, everyone! I hope you’re able to get to a parade and watch the dragons dance, and maybe even score some delicious dumplings of some kind.

Here are a few great books to get you in the mood:

Righting Canada’s Wrongs

It’s great to celebrate Chinese Canadian culture and identity, but we also have to remember the unpleasant history that Chinese Canadians have lived through.

An excellent way to learn about the animals of the Chinese zodiac!

15-Minute Mandarin Chinese

If you master Mandarin in 12 weeks I will be so impressed!

It’s probably easier to start young, right?
