I recommend this book to those who want to advance their reading level from 0 to 1! There is a big jump from level 0 to level 1 in regards to the amount of text on a page, resulting in more context to the images of the story. Since there are slightly more advanced sentences/ grammar structures and a higher volume of words, I felt that reading this book was a closer and more accurate experience to what it would be like to read regular Japanese books. A lot can still be interpreted from the images, but the text gives more depth to an image than level 0 did. For me, the hardest part of reading this book stemmed from the formatting of sentences from up-to-down, rather than from left-to-right. We have yet to write in this format in Japanese class, so it took a lot more time to read—- going from one character to the next instead of word by word. In conclusion, this book is very friendly training for a reader getting used to the direction of fluid Japanese text!
