Personal recommendation : 3-5 years old

One of my daughter’s favorite book (illustration) is Noriko Kudo’s. It is very colorful and I think of her illustration as animation to some extent. I am going to post review of some of her work in upcoming blog but let me start with this book.  This book is basically story about rooster (Dad) and Hen (Mom) and 5 chicks.   Apparently Five Chicks are having birthday (of course, on the same day for all 5 chicks)  and Dad / Mom are preparing small party for them.    *  “Piyo Piyo” : Sound of Chick Tweeting. 

Here is the storyline.

  • Mom and 5 chicks are entering the cake shop.  Chicks are excited about sweet smell in the shop. 
  • Kids are looking at the show-case window. Lineups are Armond cake, Cheesecake, Strawberry tart, Strawberry cake, Tangerine cake, fruit tart, chestnut cake, and so many more !  (Note : Illustration on this page made me hungry actually. 😊 ) 
  • Kids also found lots of cookies / other baked sweets with many flavors are also in other case. (20+ different kinds) Also, there is section of ice-cream too!
  • But all the kids came to the conclusion that they prefer Pudding in the cup.   
  • While they were fantasizing about pudding,  Cake shop clerk handed over the box to the mom saying, “Here is the item you had ordered in advance”  Kids are like “ What !!! “
  • Walking outside of Cake shop, kids were complaining they wish to choose what they want to eat.   Mom seems she does not care much and saying “Oh year? Is that so.  Oh, by the way, Dad should be coming home today early”
  • In parallel, Dad is at the toy store.  Entering inside, he was amazed of so many options.  
  • Dad talks to the clerk “About the item I had reserved earlier in advance…”     “Yes, it is right here. All wrapped and ready to go”
  • “Hii Guys.  I am home!  Your daddy comes back home!”   
  • “OK. Let’s get started” says Mom and Dad.  “Let’s dim the light and then…”
  • (Big round cake shows up in front of Chicks)  “♪Happy Birthday to you”        Count on three, Ready. One, two , three  “Make a wish and blow the candle!”
  • Mom coming from kitchen, saying “Happy Birthday, kids! I have made your favorite thing. It is not the pudding in the cup, but pudding in the big bowl!”   Mom put gigantic pudding of 5 on the table.   “Hurray! “ Kid screamed.
  • Dad brought the big box and said “Happy birthday Kids!  Here is for you. Open it!” 
  • “Wow, A Telescope!” kids excited. 
  • (all the 5 chicks at the table sitting in each chair, eating Cakes and Big Pudding in Bowl)  “Thank you Dad and Mom.  We will try to grow up and gets bigger soon”
  • (On last page, Chicks taking turns and looking thru telescope)   Dad/Mom saying “Yes, you are right.  Hope you stay healthy, and you all get bigger soon!.

Text description would not do justice here. But as mentioned all those illustrations are beautifully drawn just like animation. (My personal favorite pages are “Chicks looking at Cake Shop’s showcase” and “Inside the toy store” where Dad entered to pick up telescope. With all the colors, this book was very amusing to eyes of small readers as well!
