baru tau kalau di jepang juga ada sirkus wqwq. tak kira sirkus yang dimaksud disini itu festival. tapi ternyata sirkus, bener kayak di Rusia gitu. ada permainan dengan gajah dll. yang lucu yang bagian meniti jembatan kecil gitu sih. kalau di rusia gitu kan biasanya yang meniti jembatan itu badut, kalau di jepang cewek pakai kimono dan sandal geta. penasaran jadi pengen lihat langsung.

cukup menarik dan informatif. jadi tau kalau di jepang juga ada sirkus xD

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.

The illustrations are quite lovely, and my son was fascinated by the Japanese text. He was less fascinated, and rather bored, by the English translation of the Japanese text, though.

My 6 year old really liked seeing the Japanese text, but it's obviously a very old book, and seems incredibly outdated.

Eleanor Coerr was born in Kamsack, Saskatchewan, Canada, and grew up in Saskatoon. Two of her favorite childhood hobbies were reading and making up stories.

Her fascination with Japan began when she received a book called Little Pictures of Japan one Christmas. It showed children in beautiful kimonos playing games, chasing butterflies, and catching crickets. She pored over the colored illustrations
