i take care of my daughter and a little boy, both two years old, and i am teaching them about other cultures (one a month) for... well, forever. right now part of their education is traditional stories from each we study.
this book is PERFECT for that!!! this is exactly what you expect from the description. it includes the stories peach boy, the magic teakettle, monkey-dance and sparrow-dance, the long nosed goblins, the rabit in the moon, the toungue-cut sparrow, silly saburo, the toothpick warriors, and the sticky-sticky pine.

the illustrations are pretty small- at least not full page, but the kids love it as much or more than any of their massive colour packed picture books.

highly reccomended for anyone who would like to have a really great little collection of traditional japanese stories

Really cute interesting stories that are unique to the culture. Good introduction for my grandchildren before moving to Japan.
I remember my mom reading these stories to me when I was in elementary school. I kind of wish that the cover wasn't a removable jacket -- the original version of this book had the cover printed on, so it didn't require a jacket. I know that there is a version available with a CD for listening and follow-along, but that version seems to lose some charm. All in all, the stories are translated from original language quite well, and I look forward to the day when my little one can listen to the stories without ripping the pages.
Very thrilled to have found this book. Have wanted to find it and buy it for my kids. Thank You
My kids have some Japanese heritage, and I want them to learn about their heritage and read stories that I did as a kid. This book includes stories I'm not familiar along with the very famous Momotaro (Peach Boy). The stories are relatively long with VERY limited pictures. However, my 4 year old loves it. The morals are often about not being greedy or mean.
Love this book. So many cute stories with life lessons.
A favorite from my childhood.
Received in great condition, exactly as described
