Suki's Kimono This picture book features a Japanese-Canadian family in which the spirited youngest daughter horrifies her sisters when she insists on wearing a kimono on their first day of school. Suki wears her kimono proudly - a treasured reminder of her grandmother's visit and the Japanese festivities they enjoyed together - and silences teasing from her classmates when she demonstrates the dance movements she learned at the street festival. Delicate colour illustrations underscore the humour of this positive tale of cultural identities.
