Round is a Mooncake

10 Dec Round is a Mooncake

Round is a Mooncake children’s novel by Roseanne Thong follows an observant Asian-American girl as she notices the shapes of objects in her urban neighborhood. “Her neighborhood becomes a discovery ground of things round, square and rectangular. Many of the objects are Asian in origin, other universal: round rice bowls and a found pebble, square dim sum and pizza boxes, rectangular Chinese lace and very special pencil case.” The book is beautifully illustrated by Grace Lin which perfectly accompanies the introduction to shapes and a short glossary adds cultural significance to the objects featured in the book.
