I joined "Kittens' story time", a read-aloud session hosted by "The Wildcat Translation Club of Children's Books" today, and was lucky enough to be able to read aloud some wonderful picture books in front of such adorable little book lovers at Ikebukuro Junkudo children's books section, such a hear-warming and beautiful urban oasis in the middle of Tokyo. Many many thanks for such a wonderful opportunity. Good boys and girls who love picture books, please come and join us. They are holding their regular sessions every month at Ikebukuro Junkudo and Maruzen Marunouchi Honten.

The author, being a math teacher for 35 years in high school, also a mother of four children and grandmother of two ADHD granddaughters, has written a lot of books for which she has taken advantage of her years of experience as a teacher and her rich experience with her children and grandchildren, and this adorable gem has been dedicated to all the parents and children fighting for ADHD. I sincerely hope both children and adults can enjoy this special message from the author who has spoken with people with ADHD, listened to them using every possible and creative way, made their studying easier day after day, and accepted them as they are unconditionally, both in English and Japanese.

Ben is Back ベン・イズ・バック

A drug addicted teenage boy shows up unexpectedly at his family's home on Christmas Eve. His mother is relieved and welcoming but wary of her son staying clean. Over a turbulent 24 hours, new truths are revealed, and a mother's undying love for her son is tested as she does everything in her power to keep him safe. A triumphal performance of Julia Roberts(ジュリア・ロバーツ)as the mother is one of the best of her career, and Lucas Hedges(ルーカス・ヘッジズ)has been on a phenomenal rise.

The First Purge パージ:エクスペリメント

To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) comes to power and conducts an experiment: test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.
