Lili Bell (au); Erin McGonigle Brammer (il). Portrays the universal relationship of mother & daughter, while exploring the similarities between nature & humanity. The ama are the famous sea maidens of Japan -- women who dive deep into the ocean to harvest shellfish. Kiyomi’s mother, Okaasan, is teaching her the ways of the ama, but Kiyomi is frightened by the deep, dark waters. One night, Okaasan wakes Kiyomi to watch the sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. Later, Kiyomi comes to identify with one of the hatchlings who is drawn toward the bright lights of the city, as she herself struggles to choose between life in the city’s factories & life as an ama. Includes a pronunciation guide for Japanese terms. The illustrations capture the tone of the Orient & the traditions of the ama.
