The Boy and the Mountain

We rated this book:


Every morning, a little boy wakes up and says good morning to the mountain he can see in the distance from his window. At night, he says good night to the mountain. He decides he would like to draw a picture of the mountain, but when he is finished, he doesn’t think it looks very much like the mountain he sees from his window. He adds trees and sky and clouds, but it still doesn’t look right. He takes his dog and walks toward the mountain to get a better look. Along the way, he meets several animals, and they travel with him. He makes many drawings, but he isn’t satisfied until he returns home and realizes what it is he is missing.

Mario Bellini and Marianna Coppo have written and illustrated a sweet story that will help youngsters understand much about friendship, nature, and most of all, perspective. The text is quite simple, as are the illustrations, and yet there is a richness to the book that will have kids asking for this one again and again, and the adults who read it won’t mind, because it is such a sweet, quiet story.
