Unlike many other Graded Readers book, this one has a clear and interesting story line, so it is easier to follow and read. I find it very helpful in applying what we learned in class as it tells a real life story. Also, it is a relatively easier Level 1 book and I would recommend this to 一年生 who wants to try some Level 1 books.
I really liked this story because the vocab was mostly easy but there were some new words as well. I could recognize some grammar structures from class which was nice. The cat pictures were adorable and the story was fun to read. I would recommend this story to anyone in Japanese 110.
I really enjoyed this story! The main focus of the book was, of course, Sakura, or cherry blossoms, and their appearance in different parts of Japan. I was surprised to find myself so interested in a book about flowers!
I highly recommend this book to Japanese 1 students as it is almost completely understandable. This is due party to the books great use of pictures, which provide context when needed. The book uses a lot of the sentence structures that we see in class and is an excellent source of practice.
