Round is a Mooncake by Grace Lin


Grace Lin will be at the Chinese Garden on February 4th & 5th for a special reading and book signing. 

A little girl’s urban neighborhood becomes a discovery ground of things round, square and rectangle in this lyrical picture book.  Most of the objects are Asian in origin, other universal: round rice bowls and a found pebble, square dim sum and the boxes that the pizza comes in, rectangular Chinese lace 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.
