井底之蛙 - Short Story for 2014

Recommended Posts

Meng Lelan

Another option for the beginners to read, yes, also more of a fable and lesson in morals than a short story.  Compare and contrast the two different worlds experienced by the frog when it was inside the well and then outside the well. If you were the frog would you decide to go back to where the frog was from? You can also discuss here any knotty problems you have in understanding the story, though I would recommend that beginners read this from Tales and Traditions Volume 1 by Yun Xiao et al. Both simp and trads are provided in that volume. Glossaries provided, while pinyin support is discreetly placed in the last pages of this volume.

Also, it is easy to go to baidu and just type, 井底之蛙个故事.  You can do this for most of the common 成语 and will get a lot of hits.  Seems Baidu Baike has a lot of the 成语 stories on their website.  Link below, but I'm sure it may be different version than the one Meng Lelan is suggesting to read.
