My five year old loves the story--the characters of the gods especially. I like the pictures--street life in japan.
Present a Japanese New Year's custom to elementary age student's! This is a fun tale of a brother and sister who when faced without the expected celebration, decided to do put forth effort to make it better. When all seemed hopeless, events took an unexpected turn. There is a few valuable lessons that are presented on unselfishness, service and perseverance. The illustrations were nicely done by Linda Finch. The are slightly dull and simple but depicts the story well. They definitely give the audience a flair of the Orient. The story was written simply, presenting the main points clearly. After the story is told, the author ads some follow-up information which can be used for further enlightenment and discussion. This is short and perfect for children's story time. It can be purchased in a large paperback, enabling a group to easily see the pictures. It is book worthy of recommendation. My review of this book gives it a Four Stars rating. This book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review, of which I have given.
