Manga recommendation: Yotsuba& よつばと!

Yotsuba&  / よつばと!

I'm currently reading Yotsuba in Japanese, for reading exercise. So if you're learning Japanese, I would love to recommend this manga for you guys! 
It's mostly written in hiragana, but the few kanji they've used have furigana as well! This makes it easy to look up a word you don't understand. The language and plot is very simplistic, so it's pretty easy to read!

You've probably seen the lead characters picture, or even read the manga before, I guess she's kinda popular in the manga/anime world.

It's an incredibly cute manga about a girl and her father moving to a new city, and then take on daily adventures and challenges. It's kind of a feelgood manga with not a whole lot of happening, each chapter describes maybe one day, one happening or so, and the chapter aren't that connected together. Think sitcoms :) 

Covers of volume 1 & 2 
First chapter, ひっこし (Moving)
Yotsuba is made by the same manga-ka that created Azumanga Daioh, Kiyohiko Azuma. I never really like childish silly anime, but I've always seemed to love Azumanga Daioh! 

So if you have the time and motivation for reading Japanese, this is a good place to start! 

Until next time ^^
