review Junas Jar ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Iend What Juna finds is that adventure and new friends can be found in the most unexpected places Coupled with dreamy watercolor illustrations by Felicia Hoshino Juna's Jar is a heartwarming and whimsical tale about the power of the imaginatio. Juna s friendship with Hector is built on exploring new things while collecting things for her kimchi jar When Hector moves away she doesn t even get to say goodbye So when her brother buys her a fish to cheer her up it can not take the place of Hector but it does trigger her mind to go on a fantastical adventure in her dream When the jar is too small for her goldfish she uses it in other ways each time that triggers such dreams and growing something beyond the jar Eventually Juna is able to see Hector in her dreams safe and sleeping beside the kimchi jar she gave him and this frees her to be ready for making another friend I personally love this tale and the process of dream transformation in real life So while some may find this entirely fantastical I appreciate metaphor showing how Juna works through her unspoken anxiety about how Hector disappeared from her life However I also do think we do not have to always make light of heavy topics and there was a possibility lost of exploring open expression of Juna s loss but then again that may be someone else s story The idea that one can use their dreams to work through things is a very powerful one to me and children of 3 5 often have powerful dreams triggered by daily life and the mysteries of emotion they dont yet have language to fully explain always I have in fact asked my son at age 3 when he woke from a nightmare with a snake if the snake had said or done anything to him When he said no I told him the next time he dreamt to ask the snake why it was there or simply tell it to leave He woke the next day telling me he had done this and the snake left So while this story does make light of the deep loss experienced it honors the ability of children to use their senses and imaginations and play to work through their worlds
