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.

Hiroshima no Pika

Hiroshima No Pika - Toshi Maruki

by Toshi Maruki


I've never seen this book before, and I don't know when Ama bought it. I'm curious if she owned it when I used to visit her and if she kept it in a different place so where I wouldn't find it. 


It's definitely not a book you can just hand to a child (well, you can, but some discussion would definitely go a long way). That said, I don't think it's inappropriate for a child either. It's a terrible part of history, but a part that deserves to be remembered nonetheless.
