This is a gift from an American soldier to a Japanese kindergarten girl.

Guiding around in a museum, an escort has arrived at a picture book that an American soldier gave as a gift to a little girl. He points to the book and says the above to mean 'This is a gift given by an American soldier to a Japanese kindergarten girl.' Does the sentence above sound natural?

    Thanks, so you like the first one better. Okay, thanks again. Have a good day, MM.
