I found a wonderful book at the library by Toshio Suzuki. It is called “A Picture Book of Haiku.” It’s really lovely. It’s in both English and Japanese.
On one page, there is a famous haiku by a Japanese poet in English.
Then on the other side, it has the same poem in Japanese. Just a really lovely book, and good for all ages.
I don’t know if you readers have noticed, but I have stopped taking photos of the interiors of Japanese books. I am a little worried about infringing on copyright.
In America, you can show a bit for educational purposes, which I feel my blog does. (I seek to educate.) However, I am unsure of the Japanese laws….
It’s a bit of a shame, because it’s nice to see if the book is wordless, or English/ Japanese, etc. My goal is to help busy moms of bilingual kids choose books at their local Japanese libraries. (They can show the photo to the librarian and get the book, lickety split.)
