Round is a Mooncake by Grace Lin

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.


Sumi-E Board

This small kit contains a sumi-e board, whose unique design allows any young scholar to practice calligraphy with water and brush on its surface.  The water will evaporate so the board can be used endlessly.  This gift includes a sheet of Chinese characters to practice and a small brush.


Lion Puppet

Take in this charming marionette lion puppet.  Lion dancers lead the procession at many Chinese festivals and celebratory events.  Bring their joyous movements into your own home.
