The lyrical story of a young girl who shares the special celebration of the Chinese Moon Festival with her parents.

As they eat mooncakes, drink tea and watch the night sky together, Mama and Baba tell ancient tales of a magical tree that can never be cut down, the Jade Rabbit who came to live on the moon and one brave woman's journey to eternal life. With a gentle focus on the importance of family, Mooncakes is both a perfect book for parent and child to read together and an ideal choice for schools and libraries.

School Library Journal
"This quiet gem will make an effective read-aloud to introduce the Moon Festival and Chinese culture."
"A cozy family story rooted in tradition."
