This book is very interesting. It really touches my heart. Hachi is the dog of a college professor, they walk to the train station together everyday, and Hachi wait for the professor at the station in late afternoon to take the professor home. However, the professor died one day, and never return home again. Hachi didn’t know about it, so for ten years, he goes to the train station and wait for the professor’s return. I think Hachi is very very lonely.
I recommend this book to first year Japanese students because it contains a lot of grammar we’ve learned, and I think it will be a great review. Also, there are some new vocabularies that we can learn.
