This is a wonderful and touching book for children and adults alike. It is a story about a lonely mountain, which one day meets a bird named Joy which stops on the mountain to rest. The mountain is thrilled by the companionship of the bird, and asks the bird to stay. Since the mountain is barren and has no food for the bird, Joy can only stay for a short while, but she promises to name a daughter after her who will visit the mountain each year (and each Joy will hence after name a daughter Joy who will visit the mountain, etc.). For years the mountain enjoys the visits, and looks eagerly towards it. But then the partings become more and more unbearable for the lonely mountain, and the mountain begins crying with sadness ... leading to a surprising turn of events.
This is a fantastic book, and it is unfortunate that it is out of print. It teaches children about love and loss, and reminds adults about yearning and promises. The story and theme are complex and can be enjoyed for years to come, developing layers of meaning as you re-read the book. It is accentuated by the creative art of Eric Carle, a favorite illustrator/author among children's books.
