This Japanese version of the best-selling First Hundred Words is wonderful for getting children started in a new language.
Above every large picture there are clear illustrations of each word, with the Japanese word underneath. This encourages direct association of the Japanese word with the object, making it easy to remember. The large pictures provides plenty of opportunities for spotting the object and repeating the word.
A complete Japanese / English alphabetical list of the words in the book, with an easy phonetic guide to the Japanese pronunciation, is also included.
Delightfully illustrated by Stephen Cartwright with lots to look and and talk about, and a yellow duck to find on each double page.
Readers can listen to all the words read by a native Japanese speaker at the Usborne Quicklinks Website.
