Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

Cool Melons - Turn to Frogs!

Cool Melons-Turn to Frogs!: The Life and Poems of Issa - Matthew W. Gollub, Kazuko G. Stone

story and haiku translations by Matthew Gollub, illustrations by Kazuko G Stone
