Today’s app shout out is for the Round is a Mooncake iPhone app is in honor of the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival. This is a wonderful children’s book that teaches about shapes while introducing children to Chinese culture. I have the hardcover copy and was delighted to discover that this was available to download for free.
I have a fairly extensive personal children’s library for our home use and am always looking for Asian American children’s books to ensure that my son sees children that look like him in the books that we read together. I love that the foods we eat and things that we have in our home can be found in the illustrations. It takes effort to search out these books as they are not always that readily available or featured often on children’s book lists.
Highly recommend this book in hardcover (http://www.amazon.com/Round-Mooncake-Shapes-Roseanne-Thong/dp/0811826767) as well as for download.
