I love Japanese folktales and Ms. Sakade did a very good job interpreting/translating them in this collection so that they are easy to understand for children. The illustrations are very good as well. ( )

This was a good book that teaches a lot about Children folktales. There were stories of cute children and animals with morals about being kind to nature and receiving help from nature when you are good and in need. I did notice there are a lot of books about this tale of Peach Boy, so I'm wondering if these other books are better. The illustrations were my favorite part, they were drawn in the traditional Japanese style.

This is a wonderful collection of Japanese folktales. It is illustrated with beautiful watercolor paintings. These nine folktales are some of the most famous children's stories in Japan, including Peach Boy(Momotoro), the story of a boy born to an old man and woman who could have no children. He goes to fight ogres with animals he meets along the way and they bring back the ogres' stolen treasures to his family. This is a great book to read when studying Japanese culture.
