While jumping around the blogosphere (not sure if this is a real word but for now it works) I found a terrific post at a children story blog. I think it was kismet that we came across this on a day when Mommy School was not done due to my lack of motivation. So why not get some of our Japanese lesson in with this cute little story. There are no subtitles which is why I have added this English translation. It seems that there are different versions of this tale, as usual with all Fairy Tales and other stories passed down orally - personally I like the anime's ending. Oh, here is a link to find a really cute coloring page for your Munchkin to complete after they listen to this story. Pumpkin was so happy to color her little kani san!
Thank you for stopping by and seeing our first installment of Circle Time with Little Mochi. We hope that you come back again to see what new story we have in store for you.
Ja matta ne,
