Little Star’s mama has made a big mooncake. Will she notice as night after night Little Star nibbles away at the mooncake until only crumbs are left?
This may seem like a simple story – and it is – but Grace Lin has achieved her goal of sharing the “traits of the (Chinese) Moon Festival….quiet joy, love, and beauty.”
There are many ways in which to enjoy this book. Mischievous Little Star, nibbling away at the moon, gives parents the opportunity to teach about the phases of the moon. Readers can simply enjoy the beauty of the illustrations. It is also a wonderfully, comforting bedtime story, perfect for parent and child to cuddle together while reading.
