7/365 #每日共读 《中秋节》 A beloved title no matter what time of the year! This is really inviting for kids to learn about our Chinese heritage. “每一天, 遥遥都盼着月亮变圆。 因为奶奶说,“等月亮变圆的时候, 爸爸妈妈就会回来了。” 可是,月亮什么时候变圆呢?” The first page in the book always gets to me. Many kids in China are left-behind and raised by their grandparents in the rural areas, while their parents live in cities for most of the year, working to support their family back home. Reading this, I learnt with the kids to be grateful because we can stay with our families and see each other every single day. In many parts of the world, it is not always possible!

7/365 #每日共读 《中秋节》- Part 3 This page with the lantern saying “但愿人长久, 千里共婵娟。” has gotten me into a nostalgic mood again! Went to dig out Teresa Teng's song 明月几时有. Her beautiful voice brought me to tears. Made me remember and miss my late grandma too, who sang this song before. Heard this song many times in my childhood and somehow can memorise the cheem chinese words - this is the power of a good song! Lyrics are taken from 水调歌头 which is written by the Chinese writer and poet 苏轼, during the Song Dynasty (宋朝). 明月几时有,把酒问青天。 不知天上宫阙,今夕是何年。 我欲乘风归去,唯恐琼楼玉宇,高处不胜寒。 起舞弄清影,何似在人间。 转朱阁,低绮户,照无眠。 不应有恨,何事长向别时圆。 人有悲欢离合,月有阴晴圆缺。 此事古难全,但愿人长久,千里共婵娟。 古诗古词好美啊! Side note: Feel like going for a karaoke session now! 😜

A must have beautiful book for Mid Autumn!

This gorgeous pop up book adds so much beauty and fun to what we have been learning about Mid Autumn Festival, and the moon! The illustrations are superbly detailed and intricate, and it’s just so pleasing on the eyes.

I especially enjoy turning the moon to go through its various phases, and how there are lanterns depicting 灯谜 🏮at the back, with the different poem verses with 月 inside. Too beautiful not to have!

Thank you Jas for your wonderful recommendation! So many surprises throughout the book (:
