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!

My Thoughts

Our Moon Festival by Yobe Qiu was really an interesting book. I did not realize that so many cultures had a mood festival! Yobe Qiu walked through the Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese moon festival and some unique events associated with each festival. I appreciated how she incorporated different elements from each culture and showed how each one was unique.

I loved all the descriptive words and all the different foods from the diverse cultures Yobe Qiu showed in the stories. It was amazing to see the different foods and how each represented a different aspect of the moon festival.

The illustrations were beautiful! I loved the eye-catching designs and how they helped take you through the stories. Plus, the font was easy to read even for a younger age group.

Three things I wish I could have seen, a bit more background on the distinct cultures, the right pronunciations for the different names/ festivals, and a list of recipes in the back of the book as I think it would have been a cool interactive addition to the book.

Overall, a definite 4 out of 5 stars.

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback. The thoughts and opinions expressed within are my own.
