|kiddy books - There's this AWESOME store near my house that sells Japanese books, videos and CDs. Naturally most of this is useless to me, but I've taken to buying baby books (Dr Seuss-ish stuff) to improve my hiragana reading and comprehension skills. (Baby books have lots of repetition- great for memorization.)
I just purchased a book, the majority of which I was able to translate. It's about a bunch of little colored dots traversing various areas; a red place, a bumpy place, stairs, a mountain, a storm. The title is "Koro Koro Koro". That's the ONLY bit I can't seem to find a translation for- and that word makes up a good half of the book! (sort of like, "I do not like them, Sam-I-Am" I guess.)
Any help here on what "koro" means would be appreciated.
And this is totally irrelevant, but on that same day I also got my hands on the Japanese-language version of the "Phantom of the Opera" soundtrack, and the only word I can really use to describe it is SUBARASHII! (And this is coming from the girl who's seen the Broadway show four times. ^_^)
