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 by Richard Tames, Welcome to Japan by Elma Schemenauer and Japan 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!
