Round Is a Mooncake: A Book of Shapes

by Roseanne Thong (Author) Grace Lin (Illustrator)

Round Is a Mooncake: A Book of Shapes
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
A little girl's urban neighborhood becomes a discovery ground for all things round, square, and rectangular in this lyrical picture book. Most items are Asian in origin, others universal: round rice bowls and a found pebble, square dim sum and the boxes that the pizzas come in, rectangular Chinese lace and a very special pencil case. Bright, whimsical art accompanies the narrative rhyme, and a short glossary adds cultural significance to the objects featured in the book. Perfect for read-alouds or one-on-one sharing.
