The Sound of Silence
by Goldsaito, Katrina

by Kuo, Julia Illustrator

Yoshio thinks Tokyo sounds like a symphony hall! He delights in everyday sounds--shoes squishing through puddles, raindrops pattering down, and lots of giggles! But one day he meets a musician who tells Yoshio that her favorite sound is ma, the Japanese word for the sound of silence. Yoshio must hear this! But how can he find it amid the hustle and bustle of the city?

In the vein of Wabi Sabi, this book explains a sophisticated Japanese concept in a child-friendly way.
