Thanking the Moon

S and traditions of the Moon Festival for parents and teachers The Moon Festival is one of the most important holidays of the year along with the Lunar New Year so this book makes an excellent companion to Grace Lin’s Bringing In the New Year which features the same fami. For a book that expresses itself in only a single line of text per page Thanking the Moon has a lot of uality story to tell Much of it is told through illustrations that do wonders in setting the mood and give us between the lines insight into the real importance behind the Mid Autumn Moon Festival One doesn t have to believe in making supplication to the goddess of the moon to be able to appreciate the positive effect of setting aside a special day to remind us to give thanks for the blessings in our lives and to not ever forget the good things we do have because we re so focused on what we re still hoping to gain The whole family gets into the act of celebrating on the night of the Mid Autumn Moon Festival setting up traditional decorations and putting out the food for the party It s than just a family event though it s a community wide effort to promote an attitude of thankfulness and the unity that comes from many people all remembering their shared blessings together I can t recall having ever even heard of the festival before reading this book but Grace Lin s tender portrait of the holiday celebration provides me with ample reason to wish that I could take part in a Mid Autumn Moon Festival to experience that kind of closeness of community For readers who are interested in learning a bit about the Mid Autumn Moon Festival there s an author s note at the end of the book that gives a in depth explanation In my mind Grace Lin perfectly sums up the book and its message in the final line of this section saying The Mid Autumn Festival remains a beloved celebration and along with the Lunar New Year is one of the most important holidays of the year Just as the moon always returns to its fullness the festival continues to reunite families and inspire peace and gratitude All told I would at least consider giving two and a half stars to Thanking the Moon and I d be uick to recommend it for anyone looking to find a picture book with some cultural flavor and a bit depth of feeling than usual
