Rise and Shine Mariko-ChanMariko wakes up every morning to her mother’s cheerful call. She shares breakfast with her family, then watches the hustle-bustle as her two older sisters and parents prepare to leave, until finally it’s her turn to get ready for the yellow school bus that will take her to school.

In Japanese, to add “-chan” to the end of a name is a term of endearment, usually used for smaller children.
