Sam and the Lucky Money by Karen Chinn | ScholasticBarbara, thanks for this recommendation. What a fun way to expose kids to another culture AND build character. Thanks for stopping by Laura Anne I remember this book! It's interesting to think that even back in and probably several years earlier when it was first written four dollars didn't buy anything the boy wanted. Nice message of sharing. Then they could research the unit of money in China and compare it

Last updated Tuesday, April 24, Date s Used: May Synopsis: From School Library Journal: Sam receives four bright red envelopes decorated with shiny gold emblems as part of the traditional Chinese New Year celebration, each containing a dollar. As he accompanies his mother through Chinatown, his anticipation of how to spend it diminishes when he realizes that the "lucky money" won't buy as much as he had hoped. His mood is further sobered after an encounter with a man he stumbles upon in the street. He nobly, though not surprisingly, concludes that his four dollars would be best spent on the barefoot stranger.
Permission arranged with Lee and Low Books, Inc. Sam could hardly wait to get going. He zipped up his jacket and patted his pockets. Each envelope was decorated with a symbol of luck. Sam counted out four dollars.
