Overview

This book reaffirms the simple joys of our everyday lives when we are together with our loved ones.

Book Intro

(English) Blankie, the Grandma Ant, and the Dosol Friends lead ordinary, peaceful lives. They love to greet friends, share a cup of tea, and enjoy strawberry jam made more delicious by stirring it clockwise. Their lives are simple and happy, with no serious incidents or conflicts. Blankie can be a little forgetful because her memory fails her sometimes, but the Dosol Friends are always by her side. There is no discrimination here, or prejudice, or evil, or enemies. And yet, life never gets boring, because life is not about having constant drama, but about a series of uneventful, peaceful days. This book’s main message is that we must find our own happiness within those lives.

Tong Tong Morning Yoga: Blankie is always the first to wake up in the mornings. She practices some yoga postures. She forgets how many times she’s done the moves, but her footsteps are made much lighter. 

What’s Your Name?: Blankie forgets her friend’s name when she comes over, but she knows she is in the presence of a friend. Blankie loves being with her friends, and has a lovely day. 

Choosing Tea: Blankie is having tea with DoDo. Whether it be iced honey tea or hot honey tea, tea always tastes better with a friend!

Blankie’s Hello: ReRe is rather shy and finds it hard to be the first to say hello. Blankie tells her how to step up and say hello even if you might not remember the other person. 

Red Spider: The Dosol Friends are afraid of the Red Spider living under the bridge, but Blankie reaches out to Red Spider and listens to her story. 

Blankie’s Cooking Class: Blankie and the Dosol Ants make strawberry jam. Blankie has forgotten much of the recipe but she shares the jam, made more delicious after stirring it clockwise, with her friends. 

Pieces of Memory: Blankie gathers some wood chips to use to balance the legs of her chair, but when she’s done, she forgets what she was going to do with them. Instead, the Dosol Friends help her to create a library bookcase. 

Summer Night Festival: Blankie keeps forgetting the musical notes she has learned. Dosol Friends use colorful stickers and handkerchiefs to help Blankie remember, for a wonderful talent show.

 

(中國語/中文) 健忘也没关系

蚂蚁奶奶"闪闪"和"兜率朋友们"的日常生活十分平凡。和偶然遇到的朋友亲切打招呼、喝着甜茶聊天、一起分享顺时针搅拌会更好吃的草

莓酱。没有令人紧张的事情或矛盾,每一天都很平凡。

闪闪奶奶的记忆总是一闪一闪,模模糊糊的,时常会忘记事情。但身旁总有兜率朋友们的陪伴、让奶奶感到很“幸福”。他们生活的地方里

没有歧视、没有偏见、没有反面人物、也没有坏蛋。但他们的生活没有因此而变得无趣。因为人生并不是要去经历大风大浪、而是不断重

复同样的生活。在平凡的生活里努力寻找“幸福”、才是这部作品的主旨所在。
