Kodomo no hon

Kevin’s dad Jim gave us some sweet Japanese kids readers so I can practice my (currently non-existent) hiragana. I’m not sure where they come from; kevin doesn’t remember them from his childhood, and I doubt they were jim’s, as they date from the 50s and the math doesn’t really add up. I’m skeptical I’ll be able to read them anytime soon, but there have some seriously cute and strange illustrations that have me curious, lots of bunnies running across a school of fish and cyclops children and cheeky monkeys.

My favorite is the mice making mochi, totemo kawaii, ne?!
