"Colorful illustrations show people participating in worship at temples and shrines...Other traditional pastimes are shown as well, such as card games and kite flying."—School Library Journal

I bought this book to aid a lesson plan. It is an informational book with small sections you can read to kids. The entire book doesn't have to be read, but it can be. Each page has an illustration, often of objects and events that happen at the described celebration. There are even a few activities, like origami, for kids to try. There are also many pictures with both English and Japanese words, which helps kids learn a few Japanese words.
I found this book to be very informative, yet interesting with bright and fun illustrations. I bought this book for one lesson plan and it has actually given me more ideas of other lessons I can do with my students. I would also recommend this book for outside the classroom especially for children that like informational reading. It is a fun way to learn about another culture. Overall this book is a great aid for learning about customs unfamiliar to many children as well as adults.
