Follow Me Around Japan
An Asian nation of more than 3,000 islands, Japan is about the same size as the U.S. state of California. Go on an in-depth tour of Japan with local guide Satchiko as she shows readers what life is like in her home country, from what foods people enjoy to how they spend their free time. Satchiko will also teach readers about Japanese history and culture, show them the country's most interesting places, and more.
Follow me around Canada! Or Japan! Or Ireland! Now that's an invitation! In each book, your very own guide shows you around his country. He (or she) will talk about their home city and what its like to live there. Loads of facts are presented in clear and colorful language that keeps the readers interest. Comparisons to life in the US really make it stick for a young reader. Foods, animals, cities, nature, folk tales, schools, modern and ancient history, a nice timeline, famous products from that country, holidays (the usual and unusual), sports, weather, what to pack, and even a glossary with pronunciation help is included! Whew! Thats quite an adventure! Scholastic, 8"x 7.25", 32 pgs, pb. ~ Sara
