Suki's Kimono

Amazon.com Rating:

Suki's favorite possession is her blue cotton kimono. A gift from her obachan, it holds special memories of her grandmother's visit last summer. And Suki is going to wear it on her first day back to school -- no matter what anyone says.

When it's Suki's turn to share with her classmates what she did during the summer, she tells them about the street festival she attended with her obachan and the circle dance that they took part in. In fact, she gets so carried away reminiscing that she's soon humming the music and dancing away, much to the delight of her entire class!

Filled with gentle enthusiasm and a touch of whimsy, Suki's Kimono is the joyful story of a little girl whose spirit leads her to march -- and dance -- to her own drumbeat.

Description

"'To spunky little kids everywhere,' the dedication states, and it is an apt sentiment. Young Suki indeed fits that description.... [T]his is an appealing story of courage and independence." -- School Library Journal

"Sister-in-spirit to Kevin Henkes' Lily, Suki is a lively, irrepressible girl, who gives new charm to a familiar story line.... A fine choice for multicultural units as well as youngsters dealing with differences. Suki's story will appeal to other independent-thinking girls as well." -- Booklist
