This is a great book for any little kid, but I think it is also a great book for kids who are learning English (or Japanese, in this case) as a foreign language.  Lots of basic phrases in this book, plus cute humor.

The storyline is that a skeleton gets the hiccups.  Oh my goodness, how to get rid of them?  Lots of tricks are attempted, and finally the hiccups are gone for good!

In English, this book is available here.
