The Runaway Wok by Ying Chang Compestine

I realize that the Chinese New Year is a ways away, but I couldn't wait to share this book with you! The Zhang family doesn't have very much money even though they work for Mr.Li (the richest man in Beijing.) They send their son, Ming, to trade eggs for some rice. An old man stops Ming and wants to trade the eggs for an old rusted wok. Ming says no way, but then the wok sings, " Boy, Boy trade for me, I am more than you can see!" So Ming traded. Wonderful story! It reminds us of how we should treat people. You should really read The Runaway Wok.
