New York Times bestselling author Grace Lin presents her "favorite Asian holiday", the Mid-Autumn Festival, in this 2019 Caldecott Honor award book:

《小星星的大月饼》( xiǎo xīng xīng de dà yuè bǐng) A Big Mooncake for Little Star

Grace Lin created the story about the Mid-Autumn festival to explain the celebration to her three-year-old daughter after the traditional tale failed to capture her interest. She also wanted to increase Asian representation in American children's literature so her daughter and others like her could “see” themselves in more books.

It is a story about Little Star gradually eating the big mooncake that her mother has baked. Little Star eats the big mooncake bit by bit, in phases that mimic the phases of the moon.  

"The rich darkness of the book’s pages is cut by the glorious gold of the stars" ( New York Times author Samantha Hunt). See if you and your children can find the constellations in these beautifully illustrated pages!

小雪的大被子》( xiǎo xuě de dà bèi zǐ) A Big Bed for Little Snow.

This is also by Grace Lin, which is a perfect companion to A Big Mooncake for Little Star. This newly published book (October 2019) tells a heartwarming and tender story about Little Snow, a boy bouncing around an irresistible feather-stuffed bed. Or is it a storm cloud? Are the feathers actually feathers or are they snowflakes falling on the city below?

Both books were originally written in English, but the Chinese translation of each is smooth and beautiful. Both books are "new classics" that deserve space in your child's Chinese picture book collection.

Is my child ready for this set?

"Read to me":
Ages 2+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka® or a caregiver.

"Read by myself":
The limited text per page and the prevalence of common language make it a good "bridge book" for readers. The involved plot and detailed illustrations will capture the interest of experienced readers ages 5+. 

Option to pair with Luka®:
Consider adding Luka®, the reading robot, to your order. Luka® reads 70,000 books in Mandarin Chinese! 

Set Luka® in front of the book, and it will read aloud any page your child turns to-- creating a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child isn't ready to read by themselves. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.

Happy learning!
