My 6 year old really liked seeing the Japanese text, but it's obviously a very old book, and seems incredibly outdated.
This book was an interesting experience! I enjoyed the story and the illustrations immensely! It is the first children’s book I have read that also has the text written in Japanese. The Japanese text in this book is written from left to right, just like the English text, but I thought Japanese writing went from top to bottom. I love how the author provided the words in the Japanese writing and in the Japanese language, but using English letters because I cannot read Japanese text!
This book is actually more about the traditional Japanese lifestyle than the circus. It is a beautiful book, but might be a little slow moving for some kids.
