On Saturday, November 24th, we have a special story time with Newberry Honor author Grace Lin reading her book A Big Mooncake for Little Star, a stunning picture book that shines as bright as the stars in the sky. Her book creates a heartwarming original story that explains the phases of the moon.
“The relationship between Little Star and her mother offers a message of empowerment and reassurance. Lin's loving homage to the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is sure to become a bedtime favorite”.—School Library Journal, starred review
