"The Year of the Rooster is a cheerful start to anyone's year. With happy, spirit filled animals, The Year of the Rooster will delight kids with the dynamic images on each spread. Teachers and parents will like the positive messages, the educational value, and the inclusive story. Told in both English and Chinese, this bilingual story can help new immigrants learn a new language. Chin's story is fast-paced, with messages of community, working together, and being the best you can be, while following the phoenix's virtues and goals." - Kid Lit Reviews

"So while The Year of the Rooster marks the end of an era, it also satisfyingly brings the cycle of the Zodiac fill circle. There will be those who have scooped up the books as they emerged each year: but the good news is that it really doesn't matter when you discover these fun stories - they are extra special in their own year of the Chinese cycle or when their particular animal is significant, but young children can now enjoy all twelve stories, all year round...The Year of the Rooster is a fun, feel-good story that is sure to set young children crowing for more " - Mirrors, Windows, Doors "A number of years ago I stumbled upon a series of children's books, subtitled Tales from the Chinese Zodiac. There was a book for the Chinese New Year, and I eagerly bought the one for the Year of the Snake, glad to find something to help my then 3 year old daughter appreciate the coming Chinese New Year. Fast forward to 2017 and the last of the series has come out, to celebrate the Year of the Rooster, a full dozen years after my own daughter was born in the last year of the Rooster, 2005. With a complete set of 12 published, you can now find a children's book for every year/sign in the Chinese Zodiac." - 8Asians "The book was enjoyable to read and fun to talk about. Not only do we find out more about the animals of the lunar zodiac, but we learn, along with Ray and Ying, the value of persistence, hard work, and following your dreams -- a plus for parents!... My daughter had me read the book twice in a row, which indicates her approval... And if you enjoy reading The Year of the Rooster: Tales from the Chinese Zodiac, there are eleven others in the series to explore. Children will especially love to read about the animal of their particular birth year." - The Asian Reporter
