Yumi


Meet Yumi the youngest of the Kokeshi. She is adventurous and clever. She takes great pride in everything she does, and personifi es the universe that artist Annelore Parot has created for her characters. She loves to dress up, go to school, go to parties and solve problems! Help Yumi to fi nd the right Kimono to wear, and learn Japenese phrases. Find Yumi’s friends, and then choose an outfi t for a dress-up party! Decide the best sushi for Yumi to eat and then fall into a Kokeshi fi lled dream! Yumi is a beautiful padded hardback book, complete with leather detail on the cover, and lift-the-fl aps inside. Annalore Parot has created a world for her characters while honouring their Japenese heritage. The books have a distinctly positive feel, and encourage participation. With fun lift-the-fl aps and what-can-you-fi nd elements to the story, this is the perfect bedtime story. Children will pour over the detailed drawings, fi nding something new with every reading.
