Each of the 12 spreads will feature 12 lift flaps, 144 in total. Spreads include: - See the little girl decorate the house with lucky red decorations - Tidy the house to welcome in the new year - Watch a special firework display - Discover which animal year it will be - Make festive dumplings with Nainai (grandma) - Read a story about the zodiac with Yeye (grandpa) - Watch a lion and dragon dance in the town square - Make offerings to her ancestors - And on the very last spread, have a traditional family reunion new year on the eve of Lunar new year and exchange lucky red envelopes.
