❰Reading❯ ➿ Yoshi's Feast (Melanie Kroupa Books) Author Kimiko Kajikawa – Kairafanan.co

I read this for a library storytime this summer with a theme of folk tales from around the world This is a folk tale from Japan It was a touch too long for a perfect storytime book, but I read it first and it seemed to mostly keep the kids interest I particularly enjoyed the detailed illustrations and the resolution to the problem between the two neighbors. Yoshi s Feast is a folklore book and was published in 2000 This book is a winner of the Teachers Choice International Reading Association award The book explains how the neighbors fued over how Yoshi would smell the eel catchers boiling eels everyday and would get distracted from doing his job of making paper fans The two characters fight over a bill that Yoshi writes the neighbor about smelling eel instead of making money The story ends surprisingly, but youll have to read to find out who wins the battle of the neightbors I gave this book a rating of 4 stars I could see why they would fight but for me, it was difficult to understand everything in the book The language was okay, it was not spectacular in one bit The illustrations were to die for though, they were just the right amount of color every where and looked very authenic I would not want this in my classroom, only for the simple reason being that if I had a hard time understanding, imagine how the children would be.
