―I am fascinated by how the Akamaru characters in the picture book move. It’s fun to see the games change every day. As a parent, you can rest assured that your child will be playing games with educational elements.
-It’s cute and gentle, so I feel that both mothers and children can enjoy it together. I also liked the fact that you can choose between “color” and “shape”.
