Suitable for children in Year 1 (age 5), The Chinese New Year is from the Cambridge Reading genre strand Stories from a Range of Cultures. The stories draw on myths, legends, folk tales and fairy stories, including Aesop's Fables. The Chinese New Year is one of three stories that have been retold in contemporary language and illustrated with distinctive pictures by Joanna Trougton. Set in China, when the old year was coming to an end, all the animals began to quarrel. Each one wanted the New Year to be named after it. How will the animals decide? Cambridge Reading at Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) offers fiction, non-fiction, poetry and plays to introduce children to a variety of text types, authors and illustrators and provide a firm base for wider reading.
