" This Japanese folktale is about a couple who discover a baby boy in a giant peach. They raise him as their own and he turns into a great warrior.This is a great book to uses when discussing persistence and determination. The young warrior is kind and strong and wants to do the right thing to help his village.Because it is a retelling of a Japanese legend and illustrated to reflect that, it would be a great addition to any multicultural shelf. " said.

"Beautifully illustrated Japanese legend of an old couple who yearned for a child but had not been blessed with one until one day, as the old woman is washing clothes in the stream, a giant peach floats by. She takes it home to the old man who she thinks will enjoy the peach. When he starts to cut into it, it starts to move and breaks open; inside is a baby. The old couple thinks this is the blessing they have hoped for. He has a voracious appetite, grows rapidly, and becomes very strong.

He is a good son, helping his parents, and saving his village from some very bad ogres.

"Traditional book number 13- In peach boy, there is an old woman and an old man who are sad they do not have a child. One day the old woman goes to the river to do laundry and discovers a large peach drifting down the river. She decides to take it back for her husband. Before they can cut it open, it wiggles and jiggles and out jumps a little boy. The woman and man thank god for their blessing. This child ate and ate and could also be ready for more. He grew big and strong. On the island there were ogees that were stealing people's treasures. The peach boy set out with a bag of dumpling from his mother for the journey. Along the way he meets a dog, a monkey, and a pheasant in which he shares his dumplings and they join him on his journey to defeat the ogres. Once they arrive at the ogre island they work together to defeat them and claim all the treasures they took. Peach Boy makes them promise to never bother the village people again and him and his new friends start off back to the village. They arrive at the village and live out the rest of their days in peace. This story was cute and I liked the idea of even if you are big and strong that you can't always do it alone and it is okay to get help " said.

" This version made me think so much of the art style the artists used for the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, besides getting me to look up 桃, how to write peach in kanji.I actually have read storybooks like this when I was little. I swear.The artwork did calm me down. " said.
