I’m so excited to be taking part in the Our Moon Festival Book Tour & Giveaway, hosted by iRead Book Tours. Check out my review below and don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
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!
A wonderful book sharing insight into a special Holiday that Asians enjoy. I love how different areas celebrate the moon in different ways. The Chinese have their Mid-Autumn Festival – Zhong Qiu Jie. The Vietnamese have the Moon Festival – Têt Trung Thu. And the Japanese have their Moon Festival – Tsukimi.
Learning about different cultures and their celebrations is extraordinary. I personally had no clue about most of these celebrations, so learning them by reading a book to my son is something special. Each area celebrated in different ways, sharing different things and all joining with family. The illustrations are stunning! Such a great book!
