Fill your vases with peach blossoms, kumquat plants and chrysanthemums—symbolizing luck, prosperity and longevity, respectively, the three great blessings of life, according to ancient Chinese beliefs— and join us in welcoming the New Year of the Tiger!
In Chinese folklore, tigers are courageous and powerful, and tiger years are usually associated with great changes. We at PaperTigers have already gotten into the spirit. Have you?… If you need inspiration, gather the children around to make their own PaperTigers tiger to put on their bedside table or bookshelf, as both a symbol of good things to come and a reminder that, when it comes to great books, PaperTigers is always happy to point the way!
Here’s to a new year of growing and learning by leaps and bounds!
