Lesson Plans by Elizabeth Pedro

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a Chinese fairy tale about an adventurous girl who searches for the Old Man of the Moon in hopes of changing the fortune of her poor family. Minli, a young girl whose name means “quick thinking”, listens to her Ba tell her the story of the Fruitless Mountain. Minli lives in a poor village beneath the Fruitless Mountain, a place with no water and no plant life. Minli and her parents work throughout the day in the fields. One day, Minli returns home exhausted and wishes for a better life. Just then, she hears a man outside selling goldfish, claiming it will bring good fortune. Minli uses one of the two coins her family has in the house to purchase it. Ma is furious when she finds out and is angry at all of Ba’s pointless stories.
