    This book is beautiful! I loved the pictures. Very much like "Seven Blind Mice," which isn't surprising since they're by the same person. The folktale is very cute, and the lesson about finding answers within ourselves instead of searching the world is a good one. (Perhaps with a little help from our Heavenly Father, though.) What I absolute loved, though, was that on the back of the pages--in scroll fashion--was the entire story in Chinese characters. To be read top to bottom, right to left. An This book is beautiful!

And I recognized many. and could translate a few. It would be a lovely book to own in my own personal library, where my children could have access to it as I try to teach them their Chinese heritage and the Chinese language as well. For story time though? Nope. Not really. And even taking a moment to book talk wouldn't be needed. It's over in the folktale section anyhow.

    Interesting fold-out. Can be like a book with page turning, or one long panel.
