Meet Akiko Yabuki, the author behind Ishi, the Rock!

Here's a summary of her life!

  • Born in Zushi, a small beach town in Japan.
  • Moved to New York as a kid.
  • That was tough.
  • Many years later, ended up on Sesame Street!
  • Learned how to make content that was fun and educational.
  • Then moved to Saigon, Vietnam.
  • Felt lonely and out of place in a new place.
  • And the ISHI book was born.
