Wonderful Box of "Goodies" from Japan

Our school participated in the Friendship Doll Program sponsored by Mukogawa Fort Wright Institute. We received from Japan a wonderful box of "goodies," including two beautiful dolls. I set up a bulletin board display for the school. Since my class was studying about Japan, we spent a great deal of time going through the materials sent to us from Japan.

In order to thank the givers of the two Japanese dolls, we sent a handmade, hand-painted "Topsy-Turvy Doll" to Japan.

Several letters, written in both English and Japanese, arrived with the two dolls. Please click to read one of these letters in English or Japanese.
