as long as i can remember, i've been eating the ever-so-famous, chinese mooncake about twice a year… once during chinese new year and once during the chinese autumn festival. if i could narrow this twice a year tradition down to one, i would… for i have had one too many mooncakes in my lifetime. honestly… it's just not my thing.
having said that, chaeli loves it, so i suppose i'm glad she's catching on to some of the chinese traditions. of course, i'm researching into buying kids books that explain to her about some of the chinese festivities. while doug, i'm sure, will dig up information about her celtic heritage. which, i find, is much easier to find as far as good reads. plus, she's already addicted to haggis, so… you know… it's all about the haggis! and single-malt scotch. but she won't be able to attend those scotch-tasting events until she's much older.
anyway, i have no idea what some of the good reads are for kids… if anyone has any suggestions, i'm open for them. so far, my search results are as follows:
