ハチの話

Rating: ★★★★★

このスドリは中国もすごく有名だから、映画を見たことがあります。私はいぬも飼っているから、この本を読んだ時、感動しました。夏休みに、東京に行こうと思っています。ハチをみたいです。

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!

ノック

Rating: ★★★★★

This book is really interesting that the girl in the story meets herself! I love this story. I also love the elaborated drawings of the book.

I really recommend this book to JPN 110 and 111 students to read this. There exists some new kanjis but I believe students can understand them according to the context. This book also helps to get familiar with some kanjis.

海(うみ)の旅行(りょこう)

Rating: ★★★★★

I really like the pictures the authors drew! Those drawings are very cute. 海がだいすき!This book reminds me of a lot of 楽しいこと, though I did not get the ending. Overall, I like it.

I will recommend this to Japanese first-year students. The book is easy to read and interesting. Additionally, we can learn some new kanji.

寿司・すし・sushi

Rating: ★★★★★

This book introduces history of sushi, history of sushi and simple ways to make sushi. とても面白いです!I learned how to eat sushi in a correct way. Although I eat a lot of sushi and love sushi, I didn’t know how to eat it appropriately until I read this book.

Vocabulary and sentence structures are a little difficult for Japanese beginners, because it contains a lot of kanji (while it is easy to understand for Chinese speakers). But I think 日本語一年生 can understand the content with these cute pictures.
