First Thousand, 1000 Words in Japanese
Travel with our narrator, and discover Japan. She'll introduce us to her family, her home, and her city. We'll learn what she does in school, how she celebrates holidays, and lots more!
From a typical bedroom and bathroom (two different kinds of toilets!) to a typical day in school (the students are responsible for cleaning it!), these images of Japan are informative and interesting, discussing the questions and topics that kids are curious about.
"I think children will enjoy reading this book and comparing the similarities and differences between their lives and Yumi's life in Japan." - READING MATTERS, the official journal of the South Carolina State Council of the International Reading Association (SCIRA)
"...this book does a good job of showing Japanese culture and a day in the life of a young girl living in Japan." Oneota Reading Journal (2010)

First 1000 Words in Japanese
One unique difference is this Japanese book contains both the Japanese writing and the pronunciation for the Japanese word is written in English. Many language books have the English word written as it is pronounced in English. Instead the child or adult reader is forced to see the word as it is pronounced in Japanese which greatly assists in learning Japanese.
On each page is a double spread picture. The frame of the picture book has single items with the Japanese word underneath. In addition to learning the language, children can have fun finding the object (such as a banana) in the picture.
These delightful picture-word books make it easy for young readers to learn new words.
