Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I browsed through the book myself and found it cute and enjoyable. Then the REAL test: I read it aloud with a friend's two year old. It seemed to captivate all of her attention which is no small feat!

The pages often have a lot going on visually so she would spend quite a while gazing at each spread. This is certainly the type of children's book kids will re-read to hunt for previously over-looked gems in the pictures. My friend's daughter LOVED the pages where she could lift flaps and view scenes underneath.

I think at two years old in North Caroline some things escaped her (like riding a train) but the fun, energetic colors and characters captivated her. Each background character is shown with a unique personality and I found myself examining them individually. I enjoyed exposing her in such a delightful way to Japanese culture, perfect for her age.
