Today, June tenth, is “Toki no Kinnenbi.” (Commemoration of Time) It’s a day to remember to use time wisely. I learned about it from my Japanese textbook, however, none of the Japanese people I talked to knew much about it! It is not a special day in Japan anymore.

Okay, moving along. Here is our book for today:
Neru is “to sleep.” So Nenne is baby talk for sleep. I didn’t know how to translate it, so I just said, “Sleepies.” Because I sometimes say, “Let’s go to sleepies.”
Different animals on each page, all sleeping……a great bedtime book. The text is spare. The page reads: “Foxes Sleepies Together Sleepies.”
Do you use baby talk? I still use it around the house. My husband told me not to use it…our son is thirteen! So I have to remind myself not to say, “Brush your teethies.” I am so proud of myself when I remember. Well, I hope you liked today’s bookie book! (Whoops, there I go again…)
