Xiǎomāo hé yuèliang Kit
This less-known fairy tale provides younger elementary students with an emotionally-charged, humorous story with an important moral. Because one animal believes that the moon has fallen in the water, all the others follow suit in panic, that is until the king shows them that they are simply looking at a reflection. This play provides both familiarity and plenty of opportunity for the pleasant repetition of key vocabulary and structures.
