Riassunto: Old Jiro-San sits on the beach listening to the wind, sweeping the sand with a broom and waiting, always waiting. Some people think Jiro-San's a little strange, but Taro is fascinated by the old wise man and his wonderful secrets. And when Jiro-San reveals that some special friends — Japanese sea turtles that are ready to lay their eggs — are on their way to the beach, Taro and his sister, Yuko, help Jiro-San prepare for them. Based on a true story, this charming picture book features an endnote about sea turtles and an endorsement by the leader of the marine turtle research program at the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service.
