Japanese and English Nursery RhymesCreative Child Magazine Media of the Year Award Winner Fifteen rhymes, one per spread, celebrate the changing seasons, flora and fauna, and idyllic rural life, providing an enchanting window into a culture that cherishes its close relationship with nature This collection holds appeal for anyone interested in the country and would be a wonderful addition to an international themed story time School Library Journal This delightful collection of beloved Japanese nursery rhymes, Japanese and English Nursery Rhymes is the perfect introduction to Japanese language and culture for young readers agestoThis beautifully illustrated bilingual children s book features songs and rhymes in both English and Japanese An audio CD is included and contains recordings of all the rhymes by native Japanese speakers It s impossible not to sing along The popular Japanese songs and rhymes include My Hometown Bubbles The Rabbit Dance The Cradle Lullaby And many Did You Know notes about Japanese culture are included throughout the book, with an introduction to Japanese for parents, teachers, and librarians at the back pluses minusesThis is SUCH an awesome concept If they had hired a native Japanese speaker preferably one who has little kids to sing on the CD it would be 5 stars Other Japanese reviewers nailed it there are lots of pronunciation errors and the songs aren t exactly what the kids learned in Japan I love the way the book gives the Japanese, Romagi, and English THAT gets stars As for singing the exact or close English translation into the same tune as the original oh my goodness, I literally laughed through the CD mas my kids were listening Great concept, butno.For perspective we lived Tochigi, Japan from birth to 4yo I wont teach them incorrect pronunciations and folksy tunes in place of their children s classics Back to searching.It really is a great concept they just need to collaborate with the native tongue I was very excited about this book However the accompanying CD is terrible The way they sing the rhymes is so terrible annoying I can t bear to listen to it.and therefore it s difficult to be able to learn the rhymes for my baby It has a lot of promisejust needs a better CD. I haven t listened to the CD yet, but am very disappointed with the quality of the book.Does Tuttle not have any proofreaders on staff The illustrator has not done her homework.This book perpetuates stereotypes about Japanese clothing and hair styles.The illustration on the inside front flap of the paper cover also shown on page 9 is WRONG The adult seems to be wearing a black kagamimochi or Hallowe en costume wig on her head.WIth CHOPSTICKS stuck through it And a two color outfit that is definitely NOT a kimono light pink collar, light pink skirt, deep pink top.Kimono do NOT have cuffs as shown on the child and adult The child s kimono is missing a collar eri seam.On pp 24 5, the seagulls are described in Japanese and English as wearing white shirts and being white from head to toe, but the illustrator shows a black tail on one, and grey wings on all of them.P 20 has a spelling error sandles.The Pronunciation Guide at the front of the book says that u always sounds like it does in the word blue In that case, Zouri on p.20 should be sounded zo u ri Wrong Although Wikipedia describes hachimaki as a type of bandanna, headband is accurate p.29 Japanese English dictionaries such as Sanseido s translate biwa p.33 as loquat or medlar NOT plum.Receives one star for providing romaji and reasonably accurate translations. I go this as a gift for my dad for Christmas He knows Japanese and is always looking for an opportunity to practice and teach it I know he will LOVE reading this book with my kids I love that they had the Japanese characters, the pronunciation, and the English words.I also love that it comes with a cd I love the pictures and the fun facts included This is a book made to truly reflect the culture of Japan, and not just the language It will be a good experience for my dad and my kids. I purchased this book to get my children acquainted to a different language The book contains a CD, and you can hear each story one in English, then once in Japanese The flow is good for young ears, and the reader s voice is acceptable My children enjoy exploring this well illustrated book, while listening If you can learn Japanese like me , you will enjoy reading the book yourself, which is written in Hiragana There is also a transcript in English right below the Japanese sentences Would recommend it to people who wants to promote cultural and linguistic awareness. Lyrics and picture illustrations for nursery rhymes love the CD included so you get the melody to those who can t read music Enjoying the CD It s nice to have an idea of the rhythm. This is nice and we use it a lot for my wife to soothe our baby to sleep The rhymes are sung by a non Japanese so there are pronunciation issues on occasion, but not so much that it spoils it Good. Good selection of songs The similar book Korean Nursery Rhymes from the same publisher is great, too They cover similar topics Daughter often looks at this book and sings the songs from the other one
