Children's Literature
Bobbie Kalman celebrates the beauty of Japanese culture¾love of nature, fine arts, living treasures and much more, and allows readers to explore these wondrous aspects of Japan. Because the book is broken into small individual sections, the younger reader is treated to a taste of this ancient culture. Kalman touches on topics with enough information to arouse curiosity and a desire for further research. She manages to keep the explanations simple and to the point while maintaining the integrity of the information. While Kalman does a good job explaining the culture, she does not gloss over the problems facing Japan and its people today. Many photographs are used to illuminate the material covered in each section, showing the reader the tremendous color and beauty that is so much a part of the Japanese culture. A glossary and thorough index can be found on the concluding pages in this book that is part of "The Lands, Peoples, and Cultures" series. 2001, Crabtree Publishing, $20.60 and $7.95. Ages 5 to 12.
