It's Chinese New Year's Day, and Sam is going with his mom to spend his grandparents' gift of "lucky money" however he likes. Chinatown is full of excitement: firecrackers that leave behind mountains of red paper, a New Year's lion dancing in the streets, the clash of cymbals. When Sam discovers he can't afford the things he wants, his excitement turns to disappointment. It takes an encounter with a stranger to show Sam that the best gifts come from the heart. Vivid illustrations and poignant text combine in this acclaimed story of the real meaning of giving.
