宮沢賢治や新美南吉に囲まれた瞬間。: アマゾン10位(読み物のカテゴリー)  
The author, being a former deputy media advisor to Mr. Shimon Peres, a former Israeli president, during his tenure as a prime minister, also being a spokesperson at The Peres Center of Peace later on, is a mother of three children and a former journalist, and currently teaches English and journalism. Being in contact with children and understanding their joys and fears led her to start writing, and in this maiden work, she describes the importance of protecting the environment and appreciating the values of sustainability and minimalism, also a lesson in modesty and the choice between right and wrong especially for the people who are forced to act differently under this COVID-19 crisis. We sincerely hope both children and adults will enjoy this adorable little gem both in English and Japanese.
