      Little star wanted to eat the moon cake even though her mother warned her not to ! And that is where you have to read more to find out I think this is a half educating half great book. The reason this is because it shows different phases of the moon at one point it is also great because it gets you wondering is she going to eat the big moon cake? and it gets you on pins and needles. That is why I think this is half educating half great book.

        Summery: Little Star wanted to eat the mooncake that her and her Mom made together, even though her Mom told her not to, and that is were you have to read more to find out what happens next! My opinion about this book as a whole is that it is half educating and half great! One reason is at some point,it shows the phases of the moon! It is great because it gets you wondering if Little Star is going to eat the mooncake.
