Summary
In this story, a frog hops into a well and thinks that because he knows everything in the well he is the smartest frog in the world. Then he meets a turtle from the sea and learns that there is a bigger world outside of the well. Thus, 'the frog in the well' describes a narrow-minded person who thinks he knows a lot but really does not. This is an interesting and fun story on its own for children to read, but there is an added benefit for parents who are interested in having their children exposed to the Chinese language
