Story Time: Books About Japan

This book contains Amazon Affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more details.

When I first came up with my "Around the World" scheme, I did worry about finding all the resources I would need.

Luckily, I found a wealth of information for our first stop, Japan. Most of my ideas for the projects and information we're learning about this week, came from these three books: Japan: Things to Make, Activities, and Facts by Richard Tames, Welcome to Japan by Elma Schemenauer and Japan ABCs: A Book About the People and Places of Japan (Country ABCs) by Sarah Heiman.

I had my ideas, then I hit the fiction section. Oh my goodness, I found some beauties! We've been enjoying the incredible artwork and learning a bit about Japanese folklore and culture. Yay for public libraries!

Here are the rest of the books we found:
Wabi Sabi by Mark Reibstein
Yoshi's Feast by Kimiko Kajikawa
A Carp for Kimiko by Virginia Kroll
Yoko's Paper Cranes by Rosemary Wells
One Leaf Rides the Wind by Celeste Mannis
The Boy in the Garden by Allen Say
