Can you remember the title of the last book you read?
Being overwhelmed by the days passing by
The tower of the so-called "reading book" that I bought but haven't read yet
I think there are many people who have done it.
Tsundoku is also called the manifestation of intellectual desire.
Not bad at all,
"I still want to read a book! But I don't have time!"
For those who say
I would like to introduce some picture books that I want to read now as an adult.
１．The Snowman (Written by Raymond Briggs)
This picture book with few letters.
The adventures of the main character boy and Snowman are drawn with a gentle touch.
When I was a kid
This work made me cry in the last scene,
Now that I'm an adult, when I read it with the feeling of a snowman
I feel that I can get a glimpse of feelings beyond sadness and sadness.
２．Unforgettable gifts (written by Susan Varley)
When you lose someone close to you
She lives in a world without people
For the first time, I think that you will learn the true meaning of "irreplaceable things."
In this picture book, a knowledgeable badger that everyone loves dies
With friends who are sad and at a loss
Badgers left them for them
An irreplaceable "goods" is drawn.
３．Cat in boots (Written by Charles Perrault)
The youngest of three siblings who were given a cat as a legacy from her father.
I got a cat that is worthless compared to my eldest son and second son
The youngest child was disappointed,
"Please give me a big bag and boots!"
Believe in the cat's words that good things will happen
It's strange to actually prepare it! Thanks to the clever cat
It's a story about a big turnaround in life.
When I was a kid, I only thought about "cats are amazing!"
Now I'm worried about the feelings of my father who entrusted this "wise cat" to his youngest child ...
４．Please give me flowers, not land mines (Written by Fusako Yanase, Pictured by Shomei Yoh)
Rabbit Sunny drawn with a gentle touch
Cruel and miserable, and still remains around the world
It will tell you about land mines as they are.
Facts of the world that tend to be thought of as distant when invisible.
It is a picture book that teaches you honestly with straight words and pictures without hiding it.
５．Prince of the Stars (Written by Saint Exupery)
"I can't see what's important"
This word is too famous,
There are many other sayings about the Prince of the Stars.
And those words
We who have become "adults" before we know it
Feelings and actions that have been left somewhere
It's just something that reminds me.
By all means, this is a work that I would like you to read little by little before going to sleep every night.
６．The Cat That Lived One Million Times (Written by Yoko Sano)
This is also a famous picture book.
As the title says, I lived a million times
A cat that lived a million times and died a million times soon
Learn to love others and love yourself.
The meaning of loving and being loved by someone in a lifetime
It is a gentle and painful work.
That's all for the introduction of picture books!
Even if it's difficult to read a thick book in busy days
You may be able to read a picture book easily.
