This very creative, fun, and imaginative multicultural children’s book is a great read for any child or adult. This book ᔕᑌᗰO ᒍOE is about a young, gentle big brother named Sumo Joe. Sumo Joe is having a fun Saturday afternoon with his friends who are all practicing sumo wrestling.
However, during their fun of practicing the drills of sumo wrestling they find that Sumo Joe’s sister, Aikido Joe, wants in. There were raised eyebrows and some gasps when Aikido Joe wants to face off with Sumo Joe. It is not usual common place for a girl to want to take part in sumo wrestling. Especially after they had already made the sumo ring a sacred place. But they let the match happen.
Aikido Joe, using her swift aikido martial art skills, takes down Sumo Joe showing everyone that women have a place in sumo.
In the book, there are Japanese words immersed within which teaches the reader about the training, skills, martial art, and sacredness of the Japanese wrestling sport—Sumo. Don’t worry, @pragmaticmom has included a colorful glossary that gives more information about sumo, aikido, dohyo, Shinto and more! YThis book is a book for all that teaches not only about the traditions and history of sumo, but has a theme that woman and girls can do it all! I give this book ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️! Definitely a must have!
