When Yoko's grandparents send her a beautiful antique doll named Miki all the way from Japan, Yoko couldn't be happier. She places Miki on her red carpet and brings her candy until Girls' Festival on March 3. Even though Mama said no, Yoko decides to sneak Miki to school for show-and-tell. How could she have guessed that Miki would be in accident along the way? Looks like a trip to the Doll Hospital is in order!
Rosemary Wells poignantly captures Yoko's regret over a poor decision and subtly shows the healing power of love in this charming picture book for emerging readers.

Thoroughly enjoyed the read and great learning for my 3yo. It teaches them a little bit about Japanese culture (and Japanese dress!) and the greatest impact on him was when Yoko was not listening to her mother. It provided an avenue to discuss the concept of mistakes, acknowledging them and apologising when mistake was done. It also reaffirms that we still love him even when he did mistakes!

My two sons (5 and 17 months) enjoyed this book. The baby referred to it as the "kitty kitty" book and we read it over and over. The little one enjoyed that the doll was fed candy. My older one could relate to Yoko not listening to her mother and the trouble that ensues, including Yoko feeling so upset she can't do anything -- and then having to confess. It features a bit of bullying on the bus but the bullies have to do yard work in the end -- so there is also a story of fairness included.

Girls Day is a main part of this story, and the book explains both Girls Day and Boys Day from Japan, at the beginning.
