I enjoyed reading it. It was cute and simple. The vocab and grammar was not too hard so I could understand it. I liked the drawings.
I recommend this book to students who want to practice daily life vocab, because the theme of the story was daily life. It is probably best for first semester students but I think everyone would enjoy it no matter what semester they were in.
The format was so cool. It was two books in one. There were two stories, one about a lonely cat and one about a lonely bird. The bird’s story starts “front to back” and the cat’s story starts “back to front” (to American readers). Then their stories meet up in the middle of the book when the characters meet. It’s such a cool idea.
I highly recommend this book. Not only was it a cool idea, but I appreciated that the vocab and grammar was all stuff we had covered. I don’t think I had to look anything up, and I understood the story. This is one of my favorite Tadoku books by students I have read. Also, it looks like the drawings are hand drawn, and that’s really cool.
This book is so interesting and is worth reading because we can learn a lot about sushi in it. The book introduces sushi from its type, history, steps of making sushi, and famous sushi restaurants around the world. I really recommend reading this book slowly and trying to memorize some words that interest you while enjoying the picture and sentences.
This book is easy to read, but I learned a lot about Japan from it, including the location of each famous cities like Tokyo, Hokaido, Honshu, etc. On each page, there is a drawing as a background, which also makes the book interesting to read.
I love this book, it almost brought me into tears. This is a very romantic story that addresses how people face death. Everyone is a corpse in progress, as we will all die someday. But all these fantasized folktales make death less intimidating and make people feel more spiritually supported.
I enjoyed reading this funny book. Both the language and storyline are easy to follow. However, I always wonder why storybooks portray animals like alligators and snakes in a negative way. Many rare animals that look aggressive actually do no harm to humans unless people attack them intentionally. I think this is a common misconception that should be corrected.
This book is easy to read because we’ve learned all the grammars. Although there are some kanjis we haven’t learned, we still can guess the meanings from the picture. The story is interesting but kind of sad. If you have a dog or cat, I don’t recommend this book because you will definitely cry!
