Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

MommaDrew, August 4, 2012

This book has inspired amazing imaginative play and story telling for our family! "Where the Mountain Meets the Moon" is a timeless tale of a courageous young girl, named Minli, nourished by folk tales who sets off an journey to change her fortune. She uncovers the value of being grateful for what you already have, not in a forceful telling you how to be kind of way, but in a gradual showing way. This story really eloquently showed my six year old daughter that wealth is not always counted in coins, and that happiness can be a choice. A gift that my bumbling explanations could not have given her and that we will treasure for years to come.

The images throughout the book are breathtaking and there a change in font between the story itself and the stories within the book told by the characters. The flow of the words was a pleasure to read aloud. There were chapters with real tension and danger. There is one character, Green Tiger, who is very ego-centric and cruel. He may frighten some readers. However, he provides an opposite for the joyous giving people Minli also meets.

I will give this book as a gift, many times over. It is truly a wonderful present to read!
