This book stirs up a feeling of longing for days in the past when we lived in the embrace of the skies and the ocean.
- Book Intro
(English) <Mother's Island>
On a small island that appears above ocean waters, there are various small-sized houses in a cluster along a hill, zigzagging alleys, kids who are talking, and adults who are fishing. There is a barley field that creates green waves whenever the winds pass by, and pebbles that sing to the tune of the waves.
This island that the author created is distant, beautiful, and peaceful. It summons what we respectively long for, hidden deep inside our hearts. In this day and age where both children and adults are living a busy, chaotic life, this picture book soothes the fatigued minds of readers after a long day. It comforts us, just like a lullaby that our mothers used to softly sing to us, and makes us long for things that are precious but were forgotten.
