Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin
What a wonderful read aloud book for children. I have to admit, I would not have picked up, picked out this book, if not for our homeschool curriculum. This is a wonderful story told by a story-teller about a story-teller.
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a sweet mash-up of Chinese folk tales told with beautiful illustrations. It is the story of Minli, a young girl, in search of a fortune to please her sighing mother and honor her father. Minli truly is a courageous hero who is unafraid of obstacle, animal or dilemma.
Make sure you vocal chords are strong, the kids will not want to stop.
