    1. Interesting read on the life and poetry of Japan s Kobayashi Yatar , or Issa A great introduction to haikus for kids and adults Issa is known as one of Japan s haiku masters, and my kids and I immediately loved reading him He had a beautiful way of expressing himself in only three lines illustrating his life through natureant.

    2. The illustrations make the book The story of Issa s life is blandly narrated Some of the haiku are interesting.

    3. This book is just lovely It is haiku for both young and old, along with a touching story of Issa.I enjoyed reading this,It made my eyes and heart cry,Such simplicity.

    4. I am happy to share this older poetry book and biography I loved Issa s story, one of love for haiku, and one of sorrow much loss and rejection With haiku on every page, accompanied by the original language and gorgeous illustrations, it is a biography that entertains the reader as well as teaches the writer.

    5. Magical picture book biography of a famous haiku writer in Japanese history A boy from a middle class farmer is dedicated to his education and writing of haiku When his mother dies and the father remarries, the mother forces the boy to care for the children she has by his father and bullies him to give up schooling and farm alongside his father The father doesn t want the boy to give up his education and sends him away fearing that the stepmother might ruin the boy s chances at life As he grows [...]

    6. Gollub tells the life story of Japanese haiku poet Issa, with many of his haiku interspersed throughout the book.The watercolor and colored pencil drawings range from inspiring to insipid In general the colorful, delicate pictures of the Japanese countryside greatly appeal and enrich the poetry and the story of Issa s life, while the pictures of children come across as unrealistically quaint and idealistic Most pages are formatted to contain a short paragraph about Issa s life, a single haiku, a [...]

    7. What I thought about this book is that the man named Issa had a hard life his stepmother treated him poorly she never let him studie when he was a child for school.He had to leave at the age of 14 because his stepmother hated him.He worked as an apprentice for a very professional poet for 30 years he wanted to see his father but he knew he couldn t because of his stepmother.At the age of 37 he returned to see his father his father was very ill and shortly after his father passed awayen when Issa [...]

    8. Since I m trying to learn about Haiku, this was the perfect book Matthew Gollub translated poems of a renowned Japanese Haiku writer Issa Gollub translates the Japanese but does not fall into the trap of trying to forge the English translations into the 5 7 5 syllables as often taught in elementary schools The syllable count works for Japanese not English Beautifully illustrated by Kazuko G Stone The end paper explains about the translation and about writing haiku in English This is the perfect [...]

    9. Beautifully written and illustrated book about the popular Japanese Haiku poet Kobayashi Yataro, better known as Issa The biographical information is complemented by several of his haiku Within the text is an English translation the Japanese calligraphy is painted along the side margins Readers also receive glimpses of Japanese culture in the late 1700 s early 1800 s Appendix includes information about haiku.

    10. This story is a biography about a haiku poet, Issa, combined with some of Issa s poetry It has beautiful illustrations and the poetry within the book causes the reader to take a deeper look at the things in the world the way that Issa does I like how this book combines the poetry of Issa along with his life story The illustrations are very pretty as well.

    11. A great story of a Japanese girl s life incorporated with poetry and dramatic colors It will make children and yourself look at all living things a little bit differently.
