For the traditional Japanese celebration of Girls' Day, Yoko receives a special gift from her grandparents in Japan: a doll named Miki that has been passed down through her family for generations. Yoko is so excited to share Miki with the class that she disobeys her mother, who tells her, "Miki is too delicate to take to school."

Thoroughly enjoyed the read and great learning for my 3yo. It teaches them a little bit about Japanese culture (and Japanese dress!) and the greatest impact on him was when Yoko was not listening to her mother. It provided an avenue to discuss the concept of mistakes, acknowledging them and apologising when mistake was done. It also reaffirms that we still love him even when he did mistakes!

My two sons (5 and 17 months) enjoyed this book. The baby referred to it as the "kitty kitty" book and we read it over and over. The little one enjoyed that the doll was fed candy. My older one could relate to Yoko not listening to her mother and the trouble that ensues, including Yoko feeling so upset she can't do anything -- and then having to confess. It features a bit of bullying on the bus but the bullies have to do yard work in the end -- so there is also a story of fairness included.

Girls Day is a main part of this story, and the book explains both Girls Day and Boys Day from Japan, at the beginning.
