"Filled with now-familiar favorites, along with lesser known yet equally delightful tales, this enduring collection presents stories to enchant and enlighten young readers...This collection is greater than the sum of its parts...The text [is] simple, clear, and accessible to beginning readers and storytellers alike." —School Library Journal
"The stories retold in this delightful book were part of my childhood and my mother's before. Who can forget the monkeys and foxes, the tricksters and makers of mischief, the heroes, and the ordinary folk who do extraordinary things! These are wonderful tales, passed down for generations. Collected here, they will continue to enchant." —Shiho S. Nunes, author of Chinese Fables: "The Dragon Slayer" and Other Timeless Tales of Wisdom
"With these two books, Tuttle has been the leader in preserving the foundation of Japanese heritage and folklore for Western children of all ages. As the author/illustrator of new Japanese folktales, I am privileged to be part of Tuttle's wonderful legacy." —Sunny Seki, author and illustrator of Yuko-chan and the Daruma Doll and The Last Kappa of Old Japan
"The best way to come to understand another culture is to get to know its people...and the stories they tell. Stories are a primary means for transmitting cultural values, information, philosophies, and world views. This beautiful and engaging 60th Anniversary edition strengthens the cultural bridge between Japan and the English-speaking world for current and future generations." —Willamarie Moore, author of All About Japan
"With its approachable writing style and whimsical illustrations, the new edition of JCFS is poised to delight a fresh generation of children. May it continue its valuable work of introducing the charming lexicon of Japanese folk tales worldwide." —Rebecca Otowa, author of At Home in Japan: a Foreign Woman's Journey of Discovery
"If you want a gentler telling of traditional Japanese Tales for younger children (or all ages, really), I recommend Japanese Children's Favorite Stories and More Japanese Children's Favorite Stories, which we were also sent. These stories do not always end happily, but they have a softer, gentler tone. Six-year-old Lily and seven-year-old Johnny both like these books, and even three-year-old Anna will sit for a few stories. Anna also enjoys looking at the illustrations." —Mama Smiles blog blog
"Japanese Children's Favorite Stories is alive with characters, in illustration and in words. The characters and the stories they tell are delightful, enchanting and compelling—it's no wonder this book has been in print for so long. Children with a connection to Japan will especially love reading these stories still relevant to a modern reader." —Danielle Wright, author of Japanese Nursery Rhymes
"These collections of Japanese stories have been adored by children for more than 60 years! The fables, adventures, and traditional tales are delightfully illustrated and masterfully written to pass on Japanese culture and wisdom while engaging children and adults. What I especially love is sitting down with the kids and letting them each choose a story; at 3-8 pages each, they are short, sweet, and very interesting, keeping the kids' attention (and hungry for more!)." —Kid World Citizen blog
