If you’ve never heard of Sunae, a beautiful form of Japanese sand art, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Ice Cream Work, by Naoshi. Naoshi is a Japanese sand artist, and every page of this colorful book is an example of this fascinating art.
The story is about a woman finding work, and each day tries a different kind of work, all focusing on different aspects of her work with ice-cream. The pictures are bright and fun, and the language is easy for young readers to read.
The concept of the sunae art form is genuinely fascinating. I even found a video demonstrating how Naoshi does it.
