It is still as moving to me as it was the first time it was read aloud to me and a group of adults at a reading conference more than 25 years ago.

In this version of an old Chinese folk tale, a poor shy farmer finds a beautiful moon snail and takes it home. A ""beautiful girl"" then emerges secretly from the shell to prepare his dinner each night. A stronger version appears in Kendall's Sweet and Sour (p. 198, J-54), where the romantic story makes more sense than in a picture book; and Young's black-and-white illustrations for the picture book are so breathless and gossamer that the story itself seems to drift away with White Wave.

I bought this as a baby gift - the start of a library for him. It was one of my favorite books to read to "me" . I love the ending - "all that remains is the story" .

every kid (big people too) should have this one, right next to Velveteen Rabbit, Charlotte's Web, Winnie-the-Pooh, Oliver Button is a Sissy, How Do The Ducks Know?, I'll Always Love You, Nana Upstairs..., The House That Crack Built, Clever Gretchen, The Elizabeth Stories, TA For Kids and The Giving Tree.
Teach your children well... to love and be grateful.

Not only is White Wave a story of a farmer who loses something and someone he loves, it is a perfect story for others who have lost a loved one. It makes us remember and remind ourselves we all have a story, and how we live our lives will depend on the story others will tell about us. As an elementary teacher, I have read this story aloud hundreds of times. It is still as moving to me as it was the first time it was read aloud to me and a group of adults at a reading conference more than 25 years ago.
