Moon Festival

October 6 (2006) is the Chinese Moon Festival --
October 6 is the date of the Chinese Moon Festival --

The Chinese American Friendship Association of Maine
is pleased to provide teachers and librarians
with some educational links to Moon Festival resources:

My favorite book on the topic is

Moonbeams, Dumplings & Dragon Boats: A Treasury of Chinese Holiday Tales, Activities & Recipes by Nina Simonds, Leslie Swartz, Boston The Children's Museum, and Meilo So. (Gulliver Books, 2002)

Other books that may be helpful if you can locate them.
Moon Festival by Ching Yeung Russell and Christopher Zhong-Yuan Zhane was published by Boyds MIlls Press in 1997 (now out-of-print but might be available at libraries, used book stores)

The Moon Lady by Amy Tan, illustrated by Gretchen Schields. (hardback is op but a paperback is available from Aladdin)
