More praise for Year of the Tiger
"Year of the Tiger was a great book to read to my students prior to our school Lunar New Year celebration. The illustrations are very appealing, kid friendly and seem to jump right off the page...The book led to a wonderful discussion on how it is easy to make assumptions and form incorrect opinions about people you don't know..,just as both Su and Teddy's family did...My students simply could not get enough, and have since come to my library to re-read The Year of the Tiger, and to "seek and find" each Chinese Zodiac Animal tucked away within the pages. I would highly recommend this book as well as Oliver Chin's Tales from the Chinese Zodiac books."
-Julie Griffin, Ohlone Elementary School Librarian, Palo Alto, CA
"Oliver Chin has continued his entertaining stories of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac with another story that teaches both Eastern and Western values to children. Courage, friendship, and personal growth are all displayed in this story of a young tiger learning his place in the jungle and among humans."
- Warren W. Wright, Librarian, Chinese American International School
"The Year of the Tiger is a story about friendship and how children can help bridge the divide. The book is filled with bright, colorful illustrations chock-full of animals"
"I enjoyed how the story introduces the reader to the Chinese Zodiac and the characteristics of the Tiger. The illustrations by Justin Roth truly bring life to the characters. My kids really enjoyed this story."
- Asian Mommy
"Children will enjoy the bright-eyed characters and cartoon illustrations in this romp. Some of the figures seem to leap right out of a Cartoon Network production."
