Tokyo / Japan Books

For the past month or so the Little Guy has been napping in a room where I keep our *extra* books. In his efforts to avoid sleep he has been exploring the bookshelves. These 4 books surfaced so we read one at naptime each day.
All of them explore various aspects of life in Japan or Tokyo from a child's view point.  There is much an adult can also learn by looking through a child's eyes.  I think part of whey these books are so popular in our home is that the situations fatured cover topics from our daily life.

Here they are:
I Live in Tokyo by Mari Takabayashi

Tokyo Friends by Betty Reynolds

The Way We Do It In Japan by Geneva Cobb Iijima

How My Parents Learned To Eat by Ina R. Friedman
