I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Our Moon Festival is about how the Moon Festival is celebrated in Japan, Vietnam, and China. Each country celebrates the full moon, the harvest, and being with family. Some of the traditions they have are similar, like eating mooncakes, but each Moon Festival is unique to the country.
The text is interesting and the illustrations are beautifully done. This will definitely keep the attention of children and they’ll learn something as they enjoy the book!
