Have you ever seen a daruma doll? They are usually made of paper mache and the little doll has eyes with no pupils. The idea is that you make a wish or begin a life-changing project when you fill in the first pupil then fill in the second pupil when your wish comes true or the task is complete. I love daruma dolls and probably shouldn’t admit that I have one very BIG one that still only has one pupil. But that’s a different story!
In Yuko-Chan’s story, her village has had a rough harvest season and the people are poor. Yuko-Chan comes up with the idea to make these dolls and the village prospers by selling them at their spring festival. I love that her triumph is in a clever idea (not a physical feat) showing kids that one good idea can really change everything! I also love that the main character is blind, yet that doesn’t slow her down in any way. It’s just a fact, not a problem.
