Thanking the Moon: Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival by Grace Lin
Thanking the Moon: Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival by Grace Lin is a sweet new book that is perfect for this time of year, as last night brought in Autumn while the harvest moon was in the sky. Grace Lin has done a sort of sequel to her book Bringing in the New Year because it is the same family in both stories. This is a wonderful book to teach children how different cultures celebrate the harvest. This makes a great story time read aloud as well as a book the whole family can enjoy together. Her illustrations are warm and inviting and truly keep the reader involved. A sweet new book.
