This book is accessible to a Japanese 111 student if not a Japanese 110 student. It takes a bit of intuition to piece together some of the story but it was certainly original.
This story was really interesting and so well-drawn! It reminded me of The Ugly Duckling, but even cuter! I would definitely recommend this story.
I think this story is meant for 110 students like us because it is rather easy, even if it is more difficult than some other Yomu Yomu Beginners’ books because some sentences are quite long! But if you like little piggies and pretty drawings, read this story!
I really like this book and this is composed of two little stories. このほんはとてもおもしろくて、やさしです。 キツネは頭がいいが、ネズミはとても頭がよくなかったです。ネズミは肉をを持って、歌いました。だから、肉はありませんでした。キツネは盗みましたから.
I really recommend this book to the first year Japanese students. By telling the stories in familiar adjectives and past tense we have practiced in the class, I feel more confident when reading the Japanese books. Also, this folktale about the fox and crow could be very familiar to many of us that always has been told in our childhood. As a result, it is a lot more easier for us to understand the story. But I borrowed it from Umass library so you may check this book online.
This book is great for JPN 110 students. Some vocabulary is unfamiliar, but the story of the turtle and the hare may be familiar enough that one understands the context very well. It’s not too dense, and includes cute onomatopoeia words. At the end of the book, there’s even a little sing-along. Some grammar structures are familiar from class, so it’s good practice as well.
I would definitely recommend this book. It was quick and fun, the story was engaging, and while there was enough kanji and new vocabulary to make it challenging, there wasn’t too much. Give it a try!
For all that the sentences were simple and short, the story conveyed lots of emotion. The vocabulary was almost all familiar, and there wasn’t much kanji.The ending was kind of sad, but still enjoyable. I would certainly recommend others give it a try.
This was a very enjoyable, though very easy, book. The pictures were pretty, especially in their use of color. The writing itself was very simple and easy to understand, and there wasn’t much in the way of kanji, difficult grammar or unfamiliar words. I’d recommend it.
