A Big Mooncake For Little Star

  • Title: A Big Mooncake for Little Star
  • Author: Grace Lin
  • Illustrator: Grace Lin
  • Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
  • Publication year: 2018
  • Brief Summary: From Little, Brown and Company-“Little Star loves the delicious Mooncake that she bakes with her mama. But she’s not supposed to eat any yet! What happens when she can’t resist a nibble?”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library –I found this lesson plan from Library Lessons With Books that gives resources for learning about the moon and the Mid-Autumn Festival that Lin mentions at the back of the book.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – I was interested in reading this book after it was discussed in class but had to wait for a bit for a copy from my public library. I loved the whimsical illustrations by Lin done in simple colors of black, and gold with a black background on each page.
