This book is wonderful! As a teacher of American students in Japan, I read this book so my students can learn about the cultural differences in a positive way. I found this book to be a very accurate source of information for kindergarten age children.

'The Way We Do It In Japan' is a warm story relating a child's honest and positive reactions to his family's move from San Francisco to Tokyo, Japan. Gregory's experiences and reactions to new and unfamiliar situations prompted much discussion in my first grade classroom. Every child identified with Gregory on some level. This book was a welcome re-read in my classroom!

Strong illustrations and from the heart storytelling made me feel I had walked into this story. With so many children traveling and entering different situations, this story not only examines the japanese culture from a child's perspective but touches on their hearts and minds as they explore new places and people.
