I love this book.  It was one of the first multicultural books I discovered at our local library.  My daughters love it as well and we have borrowed it many times. Moncakes is the story of a little girl's Chinese Moon Festival celebrations with her family.  They make moon cakes, light paper lanterns and sit outside under the light of the moon telling stories about the moon.  This book beautifully weaves together traditional stories with the story of the little girl.
