Girls' Day / Boys' Day
Beautiful photographs capture the essence of two of Hawaii's favorite holidays. Brief text describes the origin, significance, and customs of Girls' Day (March 3)and Boys' Day (May 5), highlighting the similarities and differences between community, school, and family celebrations in Japan and in Hawaii. The binding produces two books in one, with two front covers. Girls' Day features dolls, kimonos, and hishi-mochi (diamond-shaped rice cakes). Boys' Day features carp, kits, samurai, iris, kashiwa-mochi (rice cakes), and chimaki (rice dumplings). Both books include many photos of girls and boys enjoying their special days.
