Japanese TraditionsóRice Cakes, Cherry Blossoms and Matsuri: A Year of Seasonal Japanese Festivities
Written by Setsu Broderick and Willamarie Moore. Illustrated by Setsu Broderick.
A delightful look at Japanese culture and family life, told via a series of short text blocks and lighthearted illustrations based on cats.
Japanese Traditions displays seasonal festivals and activities such as O-Bon, O-hanami (cherry blossom viewing) and preparing for Oshogatsu (New Year.) There are also many traditional Japanese games, toys, foods and celebrations taught through the illustrations. This would be a fun way to share and learn Japanese culture with children.
