窓ぎわのトットちゃん ✓ Learning with fun freedom and love This unusual school had old railroad cars for classrooms and it was run by an extr. I stumbled upon an important book the other dayI probably found it because K is next to J and when I’m in a used bookstore I always look for Tove Jansson booksOn this day at Retold Tales I noticed a little book called Totto Chan The Little Girl at the Window by Tetsuko Kuroyanagi The brief dust jacket description told me it was a person’s true recollections about a school of “fun freedom and love” that met in old train carsI started reading it there on the floor and knew I’d buy it I finished it in just a couple days Tetsuko Kuroyanagi writes her memories of this unusual and special school in Japan during the time of World War II It’s a beautiful and inspiring little bookThe school Tomoe was created by someone named Sosaku Kobayashi who believed children should learn in freedom with much self expression He told his teachers “Leave them to nature Don’t cramp their ambitions Their dreams are bigger than yours”The author writes many beautiful stories of the small and large ways Sosaku Kobayashi crafted a loving space for children of different abilities interests and backgrounds He and his wife made sure each child had enough food to eat could find and pursue what intrigued them and felt valued and good Tetsuko writes about Sosaku’s habit of telling her many many times “You’re really a good girl you know” and how she kept that message in her heart throughout lifeShe first came to Tomoe after being expelled from First Grade at another school At that school she endlessly opened and closed her desk ran to the window during class and other things her teacher just couldn’t tolerate At Tomoe her life changedThe school was not fancy Instead it was full of enthusiasm creativity and trust that children will follow their interests and learn well if given the right support and freedom As John Holt much later wrote “All I am saying can be summed up in two words Trust Children”Totto chan is a beautiful book showing one model of a school that doesn’t reuire students to conform but instead nurtures and celebrates themI think you should know going in that things end very sadly No one is injured in the event but Tomoe is destroyed by an American bomber and the children must move on to other schools I appreciated knowing this before reaching that point in the story Without time to prepare myself I think it would have been too devastating The book ends with information on what each person went on to do in lifeTotto chan is a book I missed until now and I’m so glad I stumbled upon it Aren’t uirky bookstores great Let’s take the inspiration of Tomoe and create and opportunities for children to grown up in nature in love and with the reminder over and over that they are good review ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ö Tetsuko Kuroyanagi

I believe books can do magic They can hypnotize you they can make you laugh they can even break your heart or they can take you to a journey you may have never dreamt of Yeah books are magic And this book of Totto chan is the greatest magic I have come across recently I don’t think only five stars can truly express my feelings for this bookTotto Chan a first grader Japanese girl lived in a world of her own She loved to talk loved to make new friends and always has a heap of uestions in her little head about everything Sometimes she wanted to be a spy and sometimes a stationmaster Precious little girl Totto chan But this attitude of her got her expelled from her boring traditional school Can you believe it They actually expelled a first graderYoung Totto chan had no idea what might have happened while her mother took her to a new school Tomoe It was not a bit like the previous one In that school the classes were taken in abandoned railroad cars Yes real railroad cars This made Totto chan to fall in love with her new school at the first sight When she met the headmaster Mr Kobayashi the first uestion she asked him was if he was a headmaster or a stationmaster The headmaster laughed and listened everything Totto Chan had to say without yawning That made her the happiest person of the world She couldn’t wait any longer to start her first day at that fun schoolTotto chans days were like dreams in there The school didn’t force them to study a particular subject They could start their day with any subjects they liked They would sing before eating Chew chew chew it wellEverything you eat;Chew it and chew it and chew it and chew itYour rice and fish and meat Fascinating right The teachers would also take them on a stroll after the lunch They even used their assembly hall as camping site But things went bad during the Second World War People died got wounded cities got bombed there were scarcity of food Totto chans happy days also turned into gloomy ones At first she lost her best friend Yasuaki chan died I was literally crying when Totto chan whispered to Yasuaki chan Maybe we'll meet again somewhere when we're much older And maybe your polio will be cured by then Then she lost her another best friend her dog Rocky She was sad really sadBut the saddest thing happened laterher school; her beloved school was burned down The dream of Mr Kobayashi disappeared amid of flames These are not fantasies These things actually happened The little Totto chan herself wrote this book Yes it is the story of Japanese celebrity author Tetsuko Kuroyanagi At first I thought it’s a fiction But it turned out to be nonfiction I love this book so much Totto chan was really lucky and so were the other kids who had the opportunity to spend their childhood in a school like Tomoe which taught them to live and laugh This book has filled my heart with some innumerable emotions I laughed I cried I felt happy I started missing my school life Although it wasn’t as dreamy as Tomoe I loved it and I still miss it School life was undoubtedly the best part of my life just like Totto chans
