Ling Li's Lantern
Published: 2020 by Midnight Sun
Level: Early Years (R-2)
Written in a traditional style, three children are given a moderate sum of money and are challenged with the task of filling the emptiness of a pagoda with anything. The father adds they have one day, and they are to spend wisely. Ling Li spends her money differently to her two brothers and is last to return home. She demonstrates special wisdom acknowledged by her father. Illustrated and presented beautifully, there is much to be absorbed about the setting from the pictures.
