A Big Mooncake for Little Star by Grace Lin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another beautifully illustrated book. I want to frame each page.
Mama makes a mooncake and hangs it in the sky; she tells Little Star not to touch it until Mama says.
That night, Little Star can't help herself. She gets up and nibbles just a little -- so little hardly anyone will notice.
And the next night she nibbles a little more.... and then a little more...
And so we see the reason behind the phases of the moon. It's Little Star nibbling away each night!
And when Mama sees what she has done and the mooncake is no more.... they create a new one.
Now, of course, I want to eat a mooncake.
