FOR CHILDREN A Story of a Girl and Her Kimono
Coco-Chan's Kimono, Kumiko Sudo
A little girl's wishes come true in a garden of flowers and friendship. In this charming picture book, Coco-Chan waits impatiently for her mother to finish sewing her new kimono.
As Mama stitches, Coco-Chan's attention skips to a dragonfly who flits through the window and beckons her outside. Stepping into the garden, Coco-Chan discovers a wonderful world where she is able to chat with the bugs and beetles and play with them among the flowers and grasses. The colors, patterns, and even the little butterflies on her kimono come to life and become her playmates.
A wonderful gift for children and the young at heart! Fun for kids and parents to read together, the book also includes a simple pattern for a cut-and-fold paper kimono.
