If you’ve been reading my blog for a few months, you know that I love to celebrate Japanese holidays with my kids! Recently, a good friend of mine visited Washington D.C. and brought back this book for my children:
It is called “Japanese Celebrations” by Betty Reynolds. At first I was a little skeptical- a book about Japan written by a non-Japanese person? But I was completely delighted by what I found inside! The information is accurate and easy to understand, the pictures are great, and all the important holidays/celebrations are included. Both my preschooler and I enjoy reading this book, and I’ll be referring to it a lot when I want to know how to teach her about Japanese customs. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Japanese culture.
