      Two little girls set off on their bicycles for a ride through the forest. They come to a forest cafe which has a range of tables and chairs to suit all their different sized customers from bears to ladybirds. When the girls have chosen the right size for them a fox waiter comes to serve them forest style drinks. Further on their journey they come to a forest bakery where they choose delicacies such as a strawberry jam sandwich on walnut bread wnd a soy roll with chestnut jam. As the sun is setti [...]

      I just want to hug this book! The colors are so warm and happy. Chirri & Chirra is an exceptional and adorable picture book. It has the feel, emotion and look of late 60's early 70's picture books. It is retro in the best, most loving way. Fantastic story time read.

    3. Danielle says:

      One of the most adorable books ever—a child's dream of a book. Two girls on a day out bike riding, animals serving bread and jam, bees drinking violet tea, and a hotel in the middle of the forest. This feels so true to the way children play at daily life and adventures. There are also three quiet nods to Goldilocks in the story, referring to something else kids want—doors and tables just the right size for them.

    4. Tasha says:

      Chirri and Chirra are two little girls who wake up early and head out into the forest together on their bicycles. They arrive at the forest cafe where there are tables just right for creatures and people of any size. They order cups of acorn coffee and clover blossom tea. Then they are off again into the forest and they find a bakery with bread and jam of all kinds. A bear and rabbit are eating there too. The girls choose their sandwiches and eat them near a pond. They play in the water, nap und [...]

      Beautiful book. Sweet story.

    6. Ariane Kimlinger says:

      Going on a bike ride in an enchanting forest with multiple delicious food stops along the way? Yes, please!!

    7. Sarah says:

      I'm packing up my stuff and moving into this book.

    8. Kelly says:

      LOVE this series! Very light read with beautiful illustrations.

    9. Christy says:

      Sweet and beautiful!

    10. Deborah says:

      This book is incredibly charming, appealingly old-fashioned. The art reminds me of Wanda Gag or Virginia Lee Burton. Perhaps not for the child who really needs a strong plot, but others will totally adore the forest cafe and forest hotel, with tables, chairs, keys and doors just the right size for each creature that visits.

    11. Mary Lee says:

      This is the first book in a trilogy that will introduce the well-known (in Japan) creator of children's books, Kaya Doi, to a US audience.

    12. Edward Sullivan says:

      A delightful Japanese import depicting two little girls on an eventful, whimsical bike ride through a forest. The pencil, pastel, and crayon illustrations have a lovely, old-fashioned sensibility.

    13. Justine says:

      My twins age 5 1/2 found this little book simply, yet intricately wonderful. I love the way the forest is depicted as inviting and nourishing. From a diversity perspective my daughter is now obsessed with finding out what a "soy roll with chestnut jam" is. A cultural bridge to different tastes. The illustrations create a view into Japanese Art through attention to detail and lovable natural creatures. So beautiful!Review from my daughters below:Sylvan , " there was cool illustrations because the [...]

      "Chirri and Chirra" by Kaya Doi is a Japanese picture book based upon two friends go on a bike ride simply enjoying their day. They stop for brunch, bike ride to a forest hotel and enjoy a beautiful nature concert. This book is very warming with beautiful illustrations while describing a day between two best friends. While the story didn't necessarily have a plot it was still quite enjoyable. This book is recommend for pairs of best friends, people interested in japanese arts and stories, as wel [...]

    15. Connie T. says:

      The art is lovely but I thought the story was strange. Elements of Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel (traveling through the woods) and Goldilocks (everything is different sizes but perfect for Chirri and Chirra) come through giving, at least for this reader, a sense of foreboding but nothing bad happens. When I expect the girls to return home after a day of imaginative play, they don't, leaving me confused. What's real and what isn't? I wonder if this reads better in its native Japan?

    16. Raidene says:

      This beautiful picture book brings gentle sepia illustrations alive as we follow Chirri & Chirra on their day long trip through the forest and natural world. Full of charming animals running the hotel, bakery and playing in the forest band, this delightful, whimsical book is sure to bring smiles to little ones and adults alike!

    17. Francis S. Poesy says:

      Maybe something is lost in translation or maybe it is just a cute little day in the life in the forest story with two cute little sisters. I can see the illustrations of forest establishments and animals keeping children occupied as they peruse every last little element. Sweet pencil illustrations with cute characters in an easy-going, unhurried bicycle journey through the forest.

    18. Milky Mixer says:

      A beautiful children's book (for children of all ages). The illustrations are soft, romantic, quirky, and delightfully detailed! I so enjoyed reading the boho adventures of these twin girls (or is the one in pants a boy?) pedaling through the forest, especially the raccoon selling jam! So cute I may have to pick up the sequel!

    19. Pat says:

      Charming illustrations depict a magical bike ride through an enchanted forest full of delightful surprises, yummy snacks, and hospitable critters; the weak ending with its barely decipherable drawing subtracts a fourth star.

    20. Stephanie says:

      Charming. I would have loved this book as a child: natural world, animals & insects, delicious foods & drinks, and various things of "all different size," "all different shapes," & "all different colors" and music. Enchanting!

    21. Kristina Jean Lareau says:

      Sweet and soft, this Japanese translation may not appeal to mainstream sensibilities, but has a quiet "goldilocks" just-right feel that may strike a chords with those who like more meandering and/or meditative books.

    22. Cmeiss330 says:

      I love absolutely everything about this lovely picture book.

    23. Dana says:

      Lovely illustrations, sweet little story about girls in the forest and animals.

    24. Emma says:

      The most beautiful colored pencil drawings.

    25. Alene says:

      If you like miniatures, you'll love this book. The illustrations are nostalgic and enchanting. It's like a fairytale.

    26. Jennifer says:

      Really enjoyed the soft dream-like illustrations. Lots of details to savor and pour over in each page.

    27. Susie says:

      I liked the illustrations better than the story; it appears that they might be colored pencil, but it is not mentioned in the book.

    28. Miss Sarah says:

      two young girls ride their bicycles through town and have adventures at each stop with differn't animals. toddler and up cute
