"immensely enjoyable"—ForeWord Clarion Reviews

"for children who enjoy lingering over pages full of magical creatures and whimsical details [...] told in simple and engaging words and imaginative pictures.”—Kirkus Reviews

"a fantastic book that has enchanted me"—Amazon Customer Review

"We are in love with this book! [...] As an artist, I love love LOVE the art in this book, I think its not only beautiful, but perfect for children. My son spent a lot of time just studying every colorful page. We read it twice in the first sitting because he was so happy! He's not yet 1, so getting him to sit still for story time is tough, and this book was such a hit he sat through it with nothing but a big smile and lots of pointing to the stuff he liked on the pages. I highly recommend this book :) Get it get it get it!""—Amazon Customer Review

"Written in a very simple way but with a profound message for both adults and kids."—Amazon Customer Review

"I LOVED it. Lots of repetition to help 'lil ones get used to structure and words! Many different words being used to help them improve their vocabulary (or pick the best word!). Most importantly, it sends a good message about how being unique and different is good. I STRONGLY suggest you check this book out!"—ESLCarissa.blogspot.com

"readers will emerge from this book feeling slightly more confident about themselves—whatever their size."—ForeWord Clarion Reviews

This book's illustrations are gorgeous and the story is great! I have been reading mostly in Japanese to my 2nd-year-old daughter and she loves it. Whenever I have time to read to her, she wants this book. And she repeats words. That's insanely cute.

HASH(0xa5ce5d74) out of 5 stars Adorable book Jan. 21 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I appreciate the simple clarity of the book. I'm able to follow along with the Japanese well enough. It only has a few pieces of kanji so I'm able to read most of the book. I'll just have to be brave and look up the kanji. Ha.

The quality of the book is very nice and well printed with good color saturation. The artwork is fun, and the story is very sweet. It has a positive message at the end and I'll enjoy using this book to teach myself and my son Japanese.

HASH(0xa5ce5fc0) out of 5 stars Delightful July 15 2014

What better way to introduce the languages of Japanese to English...or English to Japanese? Illustrations are simply delightful! I have purchased every language printed of these books and my grandchildren are expanding their language base.....and I am delighting in learning with them. What a grand concept!

HASH(0xa5ce5f84) out of 5 stars No, sub for the Kanji Oct. 6 2014
By D. Farmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The only problem with this book I had was that I can't read Kanji. Which is not okay if you are not a native speaker of Japanese. I speak and read it well enough but I can't read Kanji so I couldn't read the parts of the book that were in Kanji. And also I don't find it suitable for children that are beginning to learn how to read kana because they won't understand the Kanji either.

HASH(0xa62d0330) out of 5 stars ? Nice short children's book April 29 2015
By Jared - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a nice little book not only for children but also adults like myself that occasionally enjoy children's picture books. The illustrations are lovely I had a wonderful time enjoying the few minutes of this simple story mainly because of the nice artwork.

I cannot comment on how well the Japanese translation is as I am only a beginner to the language.
The only reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the lacking of Furigana. Especially if it's a story for children. Kanji like 顕微鏡 for microscope can be difficult.

HASH(0xa62d0648) out of 5 stars Great bilingual tale Nov. 6 2015
By Jenny Hu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My baby is half Japanese- I'm trying to teach her Japanese but I dont speak it fluently myself. I do read hiragana, well, I struggle to. So this was the perfect reading book for her. Plus she is super chiisai. The kindle version was super cheap and she seems to like the illustrations.
