The Chinese Mirror, by Mirra Ginsburg

A father in ancient Korea travels to China and brings home something he's never seen before—a mirror. Not understanding that the image they see in the mirror is theirs, each family member reads more into the image they see, and havoc ensues. Lovely watercolors enhance this story. Children's picture book.
