Would you like to learn about Japan and a different form of poetry at the same time? If so, then the "Haiku Picturebook for Children" is for you. This book combines the Japanese words with the English, a poem, an explanation of what is meant by each haiku and a delightful illustration on each two-page spread.
Kozo Shimizu is the illustrator who brings the words to life in this book. I loved looking at the pictures and see a part of Japan and their people. This is wonderful book where children will love looking at the pictures and hearing the words. This book can also be used when studying haikus in school. Take a trip to Japan just by opening the pages of this book!
Note from Brianne's mother: This picture book for children will introduce children to Japan and its poetry.
Book received free of charge.
