When I saw my niece, Mollie Ann, reading this book to Junnie, I was smitten. Then, when I heard Junnie “reading” the book to herself, well, the book got an A+ from me.
It teaches the names of animals and colors in a SIMPLE, repetative, sing-song kind of poem verse. Japanese kids were repeating after me in class the first time I brought it out!
The pictures by Eric Carle are familiar to many who love The Hungry Caterpillar. This book is also in Japanese, so was familiar to some, and was very easy for the Mama’s in my Toddler’s English Class to learn to read to their kiddos at home.
