TEN MICE FOR TET REVIEWS
Parents Magazine: "We love it! It's time to ring in the New Year Vietnamese style through this unique, embroidered pictures and rich story. This charming counting book introduces kids and parents to the customs and festivities of Tet."
Working Mother Magazine: "Mama Media! Learn all about Vietnamese New Year with this book's simple tales and exquisite embroidered illustrations of feasts, fortunes and fireworks."
*Publishers Weekly: Starred Review with Cover Photo. "...The book serves as a marvelous showcase for Viet Dinh's embroidery; Trang's clean compositions provide the template for the embroidery.... Older readers will most appreciate the pictures' exquisite craftsmanship--every inch of every spread is covered in thread--but the cheery cartoon mice, the vivid Southeast Asian palette and exuberant compositions will hold the interest of even the youngest readers. This attractive volume may well provoke a lively discussion on how another culture's holiday can seem both familiar and exotic."
*School Library Journal: Starred Review. "...Extensive end notes following the number sequence take readers back through the book and allow for a more comprehensive explanation of the holiday. In this section, Vietnamese words are followed by the pronunciations in parentheses. This multileveled approach allows this title to be used with children of a wide range of ages. An excellent addition to any collection."
*Kirkus Reviews: Starred Review, "...The authors enhance the minimal main text with extensive endnotes, pointing out significant details while describing traditional foods, beliefs, and customs associated with Tet. Altogether, an inviting, informative introduction to the holiday.”
