Summary

Summary

Today there are over 740,000 Vietnamese in America. Originally driven from their homes by war in the 1970s and 1980s, Vietnamese have continued to flock to each of the 50 states. In this revised text, we learn about such holidays as the popular three-day Tet, try a variety of unusual but accessible crafts, and learn to make Moon Cakes and Chao. Several Vietnamese folk tales as well as imaginative follow-up activities add richness to the book.
