Kids' picture book by SDSU faculty member highlights Chinese New Year

PoPo’s Lucky Chinese New Year

When Virginia Loh-Hagan was in the second grade, she read a book that changed her life. Now she’s trying to do the same for other young readers.

An education faculty member at San Diego State University's School of Teacher Education, Loh-Hagan also writes children’s books, including the newly released “PoPo’s Lucky Chinese New Year,” illustrated by RennĂ© Benoit. In it, a Chinese-American girl learns from her grandmother about the annual celebration, which falls this year on Jan. 28.
