Review:

"The 15 Japanese nursery rhymes in this gentle collection include two types: traditional Warabe Uta rhymes and comparatively modern Doyo verses. The nursery rhymes are printed in Japanese text and characters, and are also translated into English. Acraman's graphics combine a polished digital aesthetic with playfully anthropomorphic characters, including three stylized birds perched on a tree ('Little bird, red bird/ Why oh why so red? Because it ate a red fruit') and endearing rabbits wearing 'hachimaki' bandannas. Accessible verses and bright, welcoming pictures should have cross-cultural appeal while aiding in language learning. Includes a CD recording of the songs performed both in English and Japanese. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

What better way to learn a new language than through rhymes and music?

Everywhere in the world, there are poems and songs especially for children—rhymes that are sung from generation to generation and never forgotten. In Japan, nursery rhymes speak of nature, of everyday joys and of Japan's own special culture. In Japanese Nursery Rhymes fifteen well-loved verses are colorfully presented in a format that makes language learning easier. The included audio CD features kids singing in both Japanese and English—songs so lively and sweet you'll find yourself singing along!

For preschoolers and beyond, this book will be a joy to the mind, the eye, the ear and the heart.
