Diedre Casey | 8 comments Hi, I'm trying to find many books at the moment but this one is at the top. I remember checking these books out all the time when I was little I am 30 right now and was about 5 at the time so 1994 is the best best,

these books were Japanese educational books in English and covered several topics there were two anime chibi characters A young boy with a white shirt and blue shorts and a bowl cut hairdo and a professor type with glasses a white lab coat and a graduation cap hat.

the one I remember the most was about plants it had little anime chibi drawings of trees and showed how they breathe and it had a section about different flowering bulbs and they all had the cutest faces. There was one about animals that showed cats and how they behaved. There were about 10-15 books.

Do you remember anything about the cover?

Yes, the book was in color with real photos and the cute drawings. I remember the spine of the book they all had the same thing a little illustration of the boy with his magnifying glass looking straight ahead and the books were mostly white and a bar of color a the bottom to dictate the subject.

I think one was about the ocean I just always checked out the plant one and the one with cats in it lol I was 5.

I do have a crazy good memory about my favorite illustrations in it I remember an illustration about flower pollination and it showed a chibi bee and one flower that was pollinated was happy and yellow and the unpollinated flower was blue and sad, and there was a part about gingko trees and how one tree makes nuts and the other does not the trees were golden colored. If this site would let you post pictures I could draw the characters I remember TT3TT

I remember the boy he was so cute He would be jumping up sacred and there would be a little jump "cloud" under him and the one stereotypical post they do when they are proud with a pointy nose haha.
like this book was so "anime" before I even knew about it I got into sailor moon at twelve l but I had already experienced the art style early on. XD
