しろとりの友だちさがし/くろねこの友だちさかし

Rating: ★★★★★

とてもすごい本です!この本はいっさつじゃないーこの本は二さつです。まんがです。かわいです。大好きですよ。

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.

 

寿司。すし。SUSHI

Rating: ★★★★★

この本はちょっとむずかしいですが、とても面白いです。色々な寿司を説明しました。色々な魚の名前は知っていませんが、えがあるので、わかれました。魚の名前も覚えますよ。まぐろはsalmonです。本の中で、寿司のれきしも説明しました。東南のアジアから、中国へ行って、日本に行きました。たくさん人気があるになりました。店の中で、かいてんずしが一番人気があります。

 

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.

日本に行きましょう

Rating: ★★★★★

日本に行きましょう

この本は、日本で旅行の生活について書きました。本お中で、かわいい日本のちずがありまし。ふじあんと東京を紹介しました。日本の食べ物とカラオケも描きました。日本について、たくさんしゅうかんを勉強しました。

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.

京子のはつこい

Rating: ★★★★

 

京子のはつこいはラーブの本です。ときどき新しいかんじがあります。でも、ふりがながあります。

I recommend this book because it was a nice story. It made me want to continue reading and find out what happens.

リニダのりょこう

Rating: ★★★★

リニダのりょこうは楽しいです。かわいです。この本がすきです。

It was a book about a giraffe who was looking for friends. It took me awhile to get through. The vocab was mostly genki vocab, which was nice. So I didn’t have to look up a bunch of words.

 

I recommend this book. It was fun to read and not too hard.

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!

緑の豚

Rating: ★★★★

This book is very cute, especially because I like animals. The plot is also a little weird. It is like a children’s story: it is best to not think about the realism of the plot too much. The art is very cute.

I recommend people to read this book. It is not hard. It is a very pleasant read. However, it is not realistic, and the book is not really trying to teach anything.

みどりのぶた

バス

Rating: ★★★★★

最初にはちょっと話がりかいできませんでしたが、あとでわかりました。とても面白くて、ふしぎな話だと思います。私は読んでかんどうしました。だから、皆さんもあきらめなくてさいごまで読んで見てください。

I would like to recommend this story to my classmates, because it has a very good plot that keeps you curious, and it has a pretty good ending that makes you look back on your own life and be grateful. It might be a little confusing in the beginning, but you’ll get the story in the end, and the grammar and vocabulary isn’t too difficult.

ジョンさんバスのなんかで

Rating: ★★★★★

ジョンさんはバスに乗っています。彼はあそこでおばあさんと一緒に話しました。あとで、バスの中でジョンさんはねむ。だから、クラスに遅れます。おもしろいですね。

 

John rides the bus everyday. One day, he meets an old lady who sees his fashionably ripped jeans and expresses comical pity for him, unaware that the distressed look is intentional. Another day, John falls asleep in the bus and misses his stop. As a result, he arrives late to school.

シンデレラ

Rating: ★★★★★

この本は有名なストリーです。シンデレラは、子供の時お母さんが死んだ、お父さんは新しい彼女が探しました。でも、新しいお母さんとお姉さんはとてもいじわるでした。Once, with the help of おばあさん、Cinderella got the chance to go to the party and met the prince. The prince finally found Cinderella by one of the high heel shoes she left behind after 12 o’ clock. In the last, Cinderella lived a happy life with the prince.

I recommend this book to my classmates because it’s a well-known story and easy to understand. At the same time, it is interesting to read the story in Japanese, while there are not so many new unfamiliar words. So, it is pretty suitable for students to read.
