This picture book is based on a text written by the author, who was waiting in the waiting room when her child was born, in a state of anticipation and anxiety, as if she were gently placing the text in a bottle so that the memories and smells of growth would not disappear. Shortly after my child was born, I found out that he had a hearing impairment. I thought, "If he can't hear, maybe I can communicate with him through pictures and sentences," and made this book into a picture book. I hope that this picture book will gently reach out to the heart of each and every one of you.
