REVIEW by LAWonder10:
Our Festival Moon introduces the varied traditions three countries have in celebrating the Moon Festival.
The story is slightly advanced fr pre-school age children. I would be ideal for early elementary age,
It is informative of a celebration that most are unaware of. It is a good educational tool in teaching other cultures and traditions. It helps children be more aware and educated in learning about the differences and similarities of children throughout the world.
The illustrations, by Christina Nel Lopez, are very colorful. It seems to be a type of Impresionalism that I do not care for. It barely adds face features. The other issue I have with it is, some of the writing is over dark areas of illustrations so it is hard to read the entire sentence. Mostly, it contains typing colors that are easily read.
I offer a Four Stars rating for this well-made, quality book.
This book was gifted me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
Here is the tour schedule.
Meet the Author:
Yobe is an educator, entrepreneur and mom who lives in NYC. As an educator, she focused on teaching families to embrace love, diversity and different cultures. Through the years working in the classrooms and closely with other educators, she noticed the lack of multi-cultural resources that represented children of color. That is when Yobe decided to create multicultural children stories that feature Asian children, families and cultures! Yobe loves spending time with her daughter, reading to children and taking long walks during the day!
