A fantastic tale of perseverance (book review)

“Misho of the Mountain” …is a fantastic tale of perseverance that can be a great tool for adults working with children. In the story of Misho, a … seedling pursues her dreams and finds that it’s not all easy going. However, when she is confronted with obstacles, Misho digs deep to overcome and move forward. Of course, as with any story, the hero has a “dark night of the soul” when external pressures outside her control make going on seem impossible. The brilliance of the story is how Misho makes her final push by not trying to grasp something for herself, but by helping another. In the end, Misho learns that a community is made up of all kinds who accept differences and help each other.

The lessons of perseverance are something that can be difficult for adults to explain to children … “Misho of the Mountain” is a great tool in this endeavor. Misho is also written in fun rhyming verse that will keep kids engaged and help developing readers. The artwork is superb and epic, adding to the story’s charm and an aid to comprehension. I highly recommend “Misho of the Mountain” to teachers and psychotherapists as an additional resource for instruction in the vital skill of perseverance.  Read full review.
