This is an award system that has created the history of children’s literature and picture book culture in postwar Japan.
■Grand prize winners appear on Nippon Broadcasting System program We invited Takashi Mishina, a science writer and author of “Visual Exploration Illustrated Book: Asteroids, Meteorite, 4.6
Billion-Year-Old Stones,” which won the grand prize at the 71st Sankei Children’s Publishing Culture Awards, to ask questions about the universe in a special program titled “Solving the Mysteries of the Universe.” Nippon Broadcasting System will broadcast “The Key to the Asteroid” (30 minutes) from 12:30 pm on Monday, May 6th. Midori Hakozaki, the company’s announcer who says she loves
astronomical objects, asked Mishina about anecdotes related to asteroids. The same day is said to be the peak of the Eta Aquarius meteor shower, and we will also hear about the origin of making wishes on shooting stars.
The program will also be distributed on the radio app “radiko” for one week after the broadcast.
