Book Description:
 
"Our Moon Festival" is a beautifully illustrated children's book celebrating the unique ways the Japanese, Vietnamese, and Chinese communities celebrate the Moon Festival. The story highlights different families and their traditions as they observe Zhong Qiu Jie, Tết Trung Thu, and Tsukimi!
 



Based on Asian culture and traditions, these three stories are a wonderful jumping off point to start discussion and further research.
I would have liked a few more details in each story, so suggest any teacher do some pre-reading and research of their own before presenting this to a class.
This book will pair well with a hands on activity.

The illustrations are beautiful and show some diversity. I wish there was a bit more within the portrayed characters. They do all seem to have similar facial features.
We laughed at the idea of holding one's nose while tasting mooncakes.

I wondered why some mooncakes resembled rabbits and what other flavors might be.
I am curious about the significance of Spirit Money. 
Talking about lighting incense for those no longer with us in this life could lead to comparisons with festivals and activities shared with other cultures.

One of my favorite illustrations was the dragon.

Overall a beautiful book. I wish it was longer.
