Hiro's Hats

Hiro's Hats

Sale! Was $17.99, now only $8.98!

High in the mountains of Japan, a snow monkey named Hiro finds a cheerful hat."Snow monkeys don't need hats!" his brother tells him.

But Hiro's hat does more than keep him warm -- it is also a friend.  Only a robin understands. And when Hiro's hat disappears, she surprises him,

in time, with two more hats, each as playful and full of life as his first.

"In this gently whimsical yarn, an imaginative little snow monkey named Hiro sees 'a hat one day, flying like a bright bird through the sky.' The cheery red and yellow hat becomes a plaything and something more—“It is my friend and a hat.' Hiro’s siblings tease him...but a kindly robin offers friendly support... The story twines toward happy endings for all....Mixed-media collage illustrations show sweet-faced, woolly-bodied monkeys at play in richly textural landscapes. Through Hiro, Kleven sympathetically illustrates young children’s ability to find emotional connections to inanimate objects, and the creative ways they can respond to stress."  --Publishers Weekly
