DESCRIPTION:
This is a fun, lighthearted look at Japanese culture and family life, based on the childhood reminisces of author/illustrator Setsu Broderick, aided by co-author Willamarie Moore. Much of the story is told via a series of delightful, humorous illustrations that proceed through the year, showing seasonal festivals and activities such as O-Bon, O-hanami (cherry blossom viewing), and preparing for the New Year. As readers delight in the charming illustrations, they also learn about many Japanese traditions and customs, such as gathering around the kotatsu to stay warm, throwing soybeans to keep away ogres, and hanging handmade teru-teru-bozu dolls out the window to stop the rain. Also included are illustrations and information about many traditional Japanese games, toys, foods, and celebrations. All in all, the book provides a magical feast for the eye and the mind. Children and adults will both delight in the book's warm and funny depiction's of traditional Japanese family life. The large illustrations contain numerous details, which in many cases may not be familiar to non-Japanese readers. These details are explained in the accompanying essays, close-up illustrations, and explanations. All-in-all, this book provides a thoroughly charming window into another culture.
