Round Is a Mooncake
A Book of Shapes


by Roseanne Thong
illustrated by Grace Lin

Round is a Mooncake is a cute book that encourages exactly the sort of shape discovery that teachers want their students to engage in! In the story, a young girl explores her neighborhood and finds all sorts of items that are square, round, or rectangular.

As the family is Chinese, many of the items are Asian (round rice bowl, square potsticker box...), making this a book on shapes AND a fun cultural learning experience as well.  In their review of this book, Publisher's Weekly called it "an enchanting primer for children of all backgrounds." We agree.
