Mottainai Grandma
Item No.: 151224


gift wrap?: 

By Mariko Shinju

Mottainai is Japanese for "don't waste!" the watchwords of the eco-conscious, but a lesson that should be passed down through generations. The author wrote this book as a way to teach her own child about how to live in this overly-material world. Mottainai Grandma teaches her grandchild creative (and amusing) ways to reuse and recycle.

This book is the first in a series, but the only one that has been translated into English so far. This is the bilingual Japanese/English edition. Hardbound: 32pp.
