This is a super adorable book about mooncakes!
Perfect to read around Mid-Autumn Festival or through the year.

The mooncakes gather! But wait!
The moon is missing?!
Who is the thief?
Let's investigate!

Another amazing work by the author and illustrator of 《小粽子,小粽子》 and 《饺子和汤圆》! If you've enjoyed those books, this will be right up your alley too!

What we like about this book:

  • Adorable storyline and illustrations (suitable for little ones to refer and draw their own mooncakes and little town too)
  • Theme on Chinese cultural food - reading helps kids have more positive associations with our culture and food
  • Learn about the various types of mooncakes and their fillings
  • My kids always go "Ooh" and "Aah" at the special pop-up page with a 3D bus!
  • The story is transformed into a song at the end of the book
  • Little details that captivate kids - My older boys noticed that one of the mooncakes had "Mr Liu" written on its headband, and guessed that the filling was made of durian. They were so delighted to find out that they were right! There is some environmental print in the labels of the mooncakes too, that make for fun reading practice apart from the story text.

Extension activities:

  • Learn about phases of the moon
  • Use Oreo to make the different phases of the moon
  • Draw some mooncake characters, paint a scene from within!
  • Eat some mooncakes! Maybe with some Chinese tea! (Osmanthus and chrysanthemum tea are kids-friendly options)

生动有趣的绘本书。字体清晰,色彩搭配分明,立体巴士更是吸引本身就喜欢巴士的小朋友。故事结束之后还可以听儿歌。我家3岁半小朋友很喜欢书中月饼的表情和主题曲。提前学习中秋节知识,也鼓励小朋友表达感受。最重要的是,小朋友愿意用书里学到的几句华语来表达。提升了对中文的兴趣。Among all Chinese story books, this is her 2nd favourite book. 1st one is 《我的情绪小怪兽》❤
