Q: Please tell us about a children's book or picture book that left an impression on you after reading it when you were little.
Guri and Gura, the Rainbow Fairy series!
My favorite picture book was "Daruma-chan and Daikoku-chan"!
It's content is full of dreams, and I have it at home even now!
But I don't really remember what it was about.
I liked "Guri and Gura"!
"The Cat That Lived a Million Times" also left an impression!!
I loved it!
In elementary school on break times I'd play "I Spy!" with my friends in the library!!
Though I don't really remember, I was probably reading things like The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Guri and Gura~?
Since I was little I'd read Doaraemon books and dream about secret gadgets!
Splish-Splash in the Bath
The Little Prince
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Crayon no Kuro-kun
Hanasaka Usagi no Poppo series
Timothy and Sara series
I read them even now!!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
I put my finger into the holes in the picture book so much that there were times I was scared I wouldn't be able to get it out!
"Bam and Kero" series
"Kaban Uri no Garago" (Garago the Bag Seller) series
"Guri and Gura"
The pictures and stories were all cute so I read them while thinking "I wish they were real".
And though it's not a children's book, my mom would read me a novel called "Momo" which really left an impression.
A book called "Kuchibue Bancho" (Whistling School Leader).
Mom offhandedly bought it for me when I suddenly said "I wanna read a book!"
It's an incredibly long emotional story, and although it was a book for children my mom recommended that I read it too!
The picture book "Aki and the Fox"!
Though I don't know why, I remember the story and the tender pictures.
I liked reading biographies!
