Round is a Mooncake: A Book of Shapes

by Roseanne Thong, illustrated by Grace Lin - £7.99  Chronicle Books (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781452136448 | ISBN 10: 1452136440

A little girl's urban neighborhood becomes a discovery ground for all things round, square, and rectangular in this lyrical picture book. Most items are Asian in origin, others universal: round rice bowls and a found pebble, square dim sum and the boxes that the pizzas come in, rectangular Chinese lace and a very special pencil case.
 
Bright, whimsical art accompanies the narrative rhyme, and a short glossary adds cultural significance to the objects featured in the book. Perfect for read-alouds or one-on-one sharing.
