LEARN & TELL A TALE

KAMISHIBAI- Masako & Tomoko
This was a popular in Japan before World War II: itinerant vendors on bicycles would ride around villages telling stories using pictures to kids, and then they would sell candy.
NOTE FROM MASAKO 7/10/13 I know your opinion about Kamishibai box- heavy! But…today,we talked about it, and decided that We will bring the lightest kamishibai box which Toshiko has, and Tomoko WILL bring it. Tomoko said, “I am a strong woman ! I’m not afraid of any heavy things! I can do it!”……Hurray! I imagine your sigh …then, smiling…and clapping!!!
