Yoko Books by Rosemary Wells

Ahhhh, these books are too wonderful.  At least half of them make me cry! 

Rosemary Wells has captured many of the simple things that make moving to a new country a challenge for kids in school.  In particular, kids moving from Japan to the USA.

Now, Jun is about as American as they come – though she still insists that babies “hatch!”  Her vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds.  But our family IS bi-lingual.  Bi-cultural.  We eat food from the US as well as Japan.  We like to take rice-balls on picnics.  We use chopsticks.  Some of us read and write Japanese better than English.

Anyway, these are great books!  Read and learn and maybe cry!
