I am doing the book “The Three Robbers” by Tomi Ungerer for next week’s Yomikase. So I researched it on the internet. I found a video of a Japanese woman reading it in English then loosely translating it into Japanese.

I felt bonded to her. There are other people doing exactly the same sort of things I do! People who are helping kids in their multilingual journeys. The internet is a wonderful to get resources, but also to reach out to parents in the same situation.

Here is a professional video of “The Three Robbers.” It is very good! I do like the commenter who quipped, “So is this what happened to Maddy?” Referring, of course, to that famous French orphan Madeleine.

This is the Japanese storyteller’s video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaRmqzHcetI
