Jury Selections

Hidamari Nursery School, Adult Class

SAKAI Eri

Manga published in book form, in magazine [Japan]

An omnibus of stories about the “adults” sur- rounding a peaceful, ordinary nursery school. They suffer and struggle over various issues and eventually arrive at answers. They include the “working mother whose relationship with husband declined after childbirth,” “new stay- at-home mom who gave up on balancing work and childcare,” and “male nursery teacher who is unable to come out of the closet.” These are authentic stories of modern-day families.
