The Matsuyama mirror by Velina Hasu Houston( Book )

26 editions published between 1886 and 2017 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This remarkable "girl power" story hails from the olden days of Japan and has been handed down from parent to child for hundreds of years. Still in wide circulation, it is the tale of a young Japanese girl who overcomes heartache as she demonstrates true filial piety and the gift of self-reflection. Rather than the usual instrument of vanity and self-centeredness, a simple hand mirror (left to her by her dying mother) becomes a powerful tool for contemplation and self-awareness. All children will take delight in this beautiful story as it is a tale in which it is the child who becomes the great power of example to the people around her
The hare of Inaba by T. H James( Book )

24 editions published between 1886 and 2017 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<P>With its Buddhist overtones, this particular version of The Hare of Inaba originates from the ancient text known as the Kojiki. The story follows the exploits of a mischievous hare who is mistreated by a group of selfish men and is left to die until he is rescued by a passerby. When the hare transforms himself into a powerful and benevolent god, the stranger is rewarded for his kindness. This imaginative tale imparts important life-lessons about the need to treat all creatures great and small with love and respect .</p>
