Description

Could everyone be right in this lighthearted story about different perspectives?

 


The bear knows exactly what the mountain looks like—a forest. The sheep, octopus, and ant also know the mountain. It’s a meadow! It’s surrounded by water! It’s a maze of tunnels! The chamois and snow hare have their opinions too. It seems the mountain looks different to every animal. How can that be? And whose point of view is right?

Rebecca Gugger and Simon Röthlisberger’s insightful story about tolerance is told in their feather light way.

Four thousand stars. I love this little book soooooo much! The art is both gorgeous and sly- the octopus with the fishbowl helmet was great, also the ant in a bubble bath and an underground fungus greenhouse, AND the funny ways each animal prepares for the climb, but my favorite was the mashup of them all bickering. The story is perfect. The open-ended resolution is a great way to start a conversation with little ones about how beliefs can be right and wrong at the same time, and there is often more than meets the eye. I am absolutely picking up a copy of this when it is published. Thank you to the publisher for the copy for review!

Marvelous illustrations and a very fun story, but not only fun, educative too. Helping children to understand that their view of the world can be different from others without any of them being wrong. Truly a great picture book that I highly recommend!

A timely and delightful book about allowing yourself to see others' perspectives, and build empathy for opposing views The message is one that is often in children's books but I've never seen it illustrated (literally - the art was great) in this way; simple but straightforward. WIll definitely be picking this one up when it comes out to add to our library.

The Mountain is a wonderful children's picture book that will encourage them to consider other perspectives. Different animals describe the mountain in vastly different ways, but who is right? They all are! The illustrations are stunning and unique. I really enjoyed this book that encourages seeing the same thing from different perspectives. Thank you NorthSouth Books and NetGalley for providing this ARC.
