Today it’s time for an adventure: we’re going to climb up Papa Mountain! Papa Mountain is the best mountain in the world. You can clamber up its shoulders, slide down its knees, make your way to its tufted peak, and look out over the scenery. And it will always catch you in its loving arms and carry you back to earth again.
In one of Taiwan’s few children’s titles to feature father and daughter, Tsao Yi-Hsin describes one of her best-loved memories from childhood. “I was a willful, monkey-like kid, always stuck to my father, climbing on him whenever he sat down on the couch.” Doubtless, it is a story for loving fathers and daughters both.
