Description

Inspired by the author's childhood memories of the Japanese countryside, this entrancing picture book, illustrated with beautiful watercolor drawings, tells the story of Coco-Chan, who must wait patiently for her mother to finish sewing her new kimono. As Mama stitches away, Coco-Chan's attention skips to a dragonfly at the window who beckons her outside. Stepping into the garden, Coco-Chan discovers a wonderful world where she is able to chat with the bugs and beetles among the flowers. Immediately engaging to young children, this delightful tale of a kimono literally coming to life will inspire boys and girls to seek a world of wonder just outside their doors. Quilting and fabric enthusiasts will love the beautiful kimono designs that inspired the story. Fun for kids, the book also includes a simple pattern for a cut-and-fold paper kimono.
