Our Three New Years!
by Cynthia Cheng Mintz

Tory and Andy are five-year-old twins who celebrate not one, not two, but THREE different New Years! See how the twins and their family celebrate Lunar New Year, Rosh Hashanah, and the end of the calendar year—especially the different yummy foods they eat. Meet Mommy and Daddy, Poh Poh and Gung Gung, and Bubbe and Zayde, as well as cousins, aunts, and uncles in this fun story about a modern interfaith and interethnic family. Told from the twins’ perspective, this story puts a unique spin on tradition. How many New Years do YOU celebrate?
