Description: A gentle story told with great subtlety about a little Japanese girl's confrontation with an age old tradition. As Children's Day approaches, Kimiko longs to have a carp kite for her very own to fly. But this is against tradition -- only boys are allowed to have carp kites. Kimiko's mother tries to comfort her by reminding her that there is a holiday just for girls: Doll Festival Day. This does not satisfy Kimiko and she continues to dream of the day she will have her very own carp. A magical ending leaves Kimiko happy and no one has to break tradition. 1996, 10" x 8.5", 30 pp. Ages 4-12.
