In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.

Original post — Thursday, September 1, 2005

Ming Lo and his wife live in the shadow of a mountain and he?s not too happy about it. He seeks help from a wise man who tells him how to move the mountain away from his house. Ming Lo follows the wise man?s directions and ends up a happy man. Find out how he was able to move the mountain in this clever story.

This is a simple but amusing story. It makes me smile at the wisdom of the old man and how he is able to "fool" Ming Lo into being happy. I love the illustrations in this book. Be sure to check out other books by this great author/illustrator like Owl At Home or the "Frog and Toad" books.
