Where the Mountain Meets the Moon: Board Game

Even though I've already wrote about this in my newsletter, I wanted to post this on my blog, too--it just impressed and amazed me so much! On my facebook page, a lovely reader named Emme posted the photo on the left. Apparently, she had read Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and as a project for her class made a board game based on the book. Wow, right?!!

It was so well done that I asked her if she would let me make her game available for others to play as well. She enthusiastically agreed and I am so pleased to have her work included as part of the Activities Page of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon on my website.

I think it's the perfect activity for small book clubs or even any family that has read Where the Mountain Meets the Moon together.

My favorite part is the following message that Emme includes in the instructions:

Thank You for Playing
WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON
Based on Grace Lin’s Novel That Honors Chinese Legends

Reading a book is like taking a journey. Some of the things that
happen do not make sense until the journey is over or the book is
finished. The book Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is
one of those journeys. I highly recommend you check out this
book and begin your journey of discovery and harmony
the same way that Minli did.

Sincerely,
Emme


Isn't that just wonderful?
