When we were in Tokyo, we stopped by the bookstore at Ueno Station. There were not a lot of English books there, but the ones they had were pretty good. My son loves Doraemon, so he picked out this English/Japanese version of the comic. He read it pretty quickly. I am using it to study Japanese. It’s so interesting to see where Doraeomon got its start!
But however……………..I must admit that several months ago, I saw this book and considered it. I rejected it because the first couple pages are about commiting suicide! I thought, “That’s not really appropriate.”
But now months later, upon reading further than the first few pages, I realized that this book is okay. It is totally appropriate for upper elementary. (And it is not really about suicide……..read the book and find out!) I know, I am one of those bad moms who burns books without even reading them! LOL
Anyway, my husband commanded me, “Buy more of those Doraemon books.” I haven’t yet…..but I will!
Omg, I want all these books!
