Book Review: My Story: When I Was Three and Noriga-San: The Doctor Who Loved to Learn

My friend, Ched Magaspar is a Peace volunteer. The volunteer group she belongs to is The Sunday Peace Volunteer of the Horoshima Peace Park Initiative. Their group has been at work with peace talks, storytelling and sharing of peace projects with volunteers, NGOs and educators from all over the globe. 

One of their more successful projects is the publication of a children's book, My Story: When I Was Three, a collaborative book project by Kunihiko Ida, Naomi Nakagoshi, Almira Raymundo and Ched Magaspar. It tells the story of Kunihiko Ida who is an atomic bomb survivor. His story, though very tragic, is filled with resilience and inspiration. War is never a pretty topic to explore but the beauty of the human spirit to survive is always at its core. Apart from this compelling book, Ched has written another one, Norinaga San: The Doctor Who Loved to Learn. Through this picture-story book, young children are informed about the folk hero of Matsusaka, Motoori Norinaaga. The narrative is honest and direct to the point. The illustrations are beautifully crafted capturing the nostalgia and the simple, but noble beauty of Noringa-san's life. 

 It is a joy to have these books for my personal library. A precious gift from one storyteller to another!
