      Based on the true story of Hachik , the dog who waited for his owner after his death at Shibuya Station for 9 years.

      Great way to introduce the story of the loyal dog Hachiko

    3. Roger DeBlanck says:

      Hachiko is full of sadness and wonder about a dog waiting for his master Turner does a fine job telling the story, and Nascimbene s illustrations bring the dog to life Nascimbene makes use of smaller pictures when he focuses on the dog exclusively, and when other aspects of the story are discussed, he uses larger spreads The colors make use of both warmth and coolness, and everything has a touch of somber loveliness.

      Text to World Connection Hachiko The True Story of a Loyal Dog is a wonderful story of friendship The picture book shows the importance of friendship which I think is something the world seems to share and embrace In the story, the main character begins a friendship with a furry friend This type of friendship is one that most people can relate to that extends beyond upbringings People tend to have good relationships with animals This story does a great job at portraying this strong relationship [...]

      I saw the story of this dog, Hachiko, when I was following another dog story Gobi and I d link it but the computer I m on isn t letting me There have been quite a few books written about Hachiko this one is fiction and quite sweet.If I do a study on Japan with the kids we homeschool them I shall be sure to borrow this from the library as part of it.

    6. Shannon says:

      This book was heartwarming because it showed a bond between a man and a dog Even the story did a great job showing loyalty to its owner.

    7. Eva Leger says:

      Unlike Hachiko Waits, this story about Japan s most faithful dog is much age appropriate for my almost 6 year old The story is shorter which enables a child in that age range to keep their attention where it should be and the numerous illustrations serve to keep the young reader entertained along with the story.A quick note about the illustrations I didn t really like the way the people were portrayed but the everything else in relation to the pictures I thought was matching I can t put my fing [...]

      Hachiko is the story of an amazing dog that holds true to his owner even after his owner dies A young boy named Kentaro is also featured in this book He takes care of Hachiko at the train station after his owner, Dr Ueno, dies The strongest part of Hachiko is the dedication the dog shows to his owner and in turn the townspeople show to the dog Every day for seven years the dog would show up to wait for Dr Ueno, but the doctor never showed The dog was so famous and inspirational that the people o [...]

      Story books of animals, in my opinion, are the most interesting This story of Hachiko, the dog who lived in Japan, was an amazing story Hachiko was a loyal dog who caught the attention of many people living in Japan He waited every day for his friend to come and see him at the station Many grew to love and adore this dog It teaches children the loyalty of animals and about the concept of loyalty This book most likely won this award for it s beautifully illustrated pictures This picture book matc [...]

    15. Michele Farmer says:

      This book is based on a true story about a loyal dog who faithfully journeyed to a train station in Tokyo to await his friend s daily return, long after the man had died The illustrations are simple and pretty, and the story is moving and inspirational It is an excellent vehicle for exploring loyalty, friendship, and devotion and who doesn t love an amazing dog story As an added bonus, the author adds an interesting, short summary of the real story of Japan s Hachiko at the book s end I loved th [...]

    16. Ana says:

      I first learned of Hachiko while watching a preview for a movie of the same name I was not aware that a picture book existed that told the story of this amazing dog What a gentle, beautiful creature to patiently and loyally wait for a master long gone Of course, the story brought tears to my eyes, and of course, much like young Kentaro, I also wondered if Hachiko knew that his master had died This particular picture book is filled with beauty in its simplicity, allowing the words to tell the tal [...]

    18. Tanja says:

      I had seen the movie about Hachiko a couple of months ago and was surprised to find this picture book version of the story in my new library It made me cry, just like the movie I knew right away that this is one of those picture book treasures I need to have on my shelf I am also determined to visit Japan hopefully in the not too far future and to see the train station in front of which Hachiko waited so loyally for his master A moving story, well retold and beautifully illustrated.

    20. LeAndra Simone says:

      This story gets me in the feels everytime I read it I m a dog lover and have fur babies at home and this story hits home for me so often The story surround a dog named Hachi, and after his master passes away suddenly he begins to wait He waits for days, months, years, until his owner finally returns to take him home one last time A great story about loyalty and the bond humans can have with their pets.

    21. Shannon says:

      Having lived in Japan, I have not only heard the story of Hachiko but waited for friends by his statue at the Shibuya Train Station and even used to have the cutest doggone Hachiko hankie Hachiko s story is true and lovely In this book, it is retold and illustrated well for the youngest new little fans of Hachiko.Does anyone know if Ueno Train Station is named after Dr Ueno Please tell me if you know the answer.

    22. Brenda Lambert says:

      The loyalty and love a dog can have is a powerful thing and creates happiness in many people and that is just what I felt while reading this book As someone who grew up with pet dogs, I have felt just how happy having a dog can make someone feel and in this book Hachiko made everyone happy, simply because he was a loyal, friendly and excited dog This excitement of having a dog has always made reading books about dogs enjoyable because 9 times of 10 the story is a cheerful story.

    23. Paul says:

      I knew nothing about the actual Hachiko before reading the book, so didn t know whether the true story was going Nascimbene s fine illustrations bring a quality to the story that roots it to Japan, and the narrative is a good fit for the visual component of the book It helps to work with a lovely story to begin with, but the author and illustrator have combined their skills to make this a lovely book as well.

    24. Alexandria Shafer says:

      I liked this story It was a sad and touching story of a dog who was forever loyal to his master and not only a boy buy an entire community who grew to love the dog and homered him with a statue I feel it s a very well written story and not only teaches about loyalty but also about another culture.

    25. Courtney says:

      Really nice illustrations, and Hachiko s story was really sweet It reminded me of one I d heard that happened in Scotland I think , too I can t remember that dogs name, though Something Jack Sweetfriar Jack Anyway, it s a really cute book, nice illustrations Definitely worth checking out

    26. Kayla says:

      i enjoyed this book, i liked that it was based on a true story about Hachiko it was very sad when the dog Mr Ueno passed away and Hachiko was just sitting there waiting for him to return it was also sad when Hachiko died i liked that these social studies books are very different from each other.

    27. Loren says:

      Hachiko, a dog who kept vigil for nearly 10 years at a Tokyo train station, waiting for his deceased master to return from work Turner unfolds this poignant true story in the natural, unaffected voice of Kentaro, a fictional little boy, who wonders at the dog s unswerving devotion This book is better than the recent movie

    28. Mary Crytzer says:

      A true story about a faithful dog who met his owner at a train station at the end of every day The loyal dog continued to do so, even after the owner died You feel the sadness and the concern for the dog through a young boy s eyes The story is very heartwarming I think a better job could have been done with the illustrations They didn t add to the story.

    29. Mac says:

      The heartwarming true story of a loyal dog

    30. Ms Threlkeld says:

      May be a bit too text heavy to holder younger readers interest, but very sweet story about loyalty and friendship that will have most people tearing up at the end.
