As we’ve been studying Japan, I discovered that I really couldn’t find a good list of children’s books about Japan. So I wanted to share with you this list that I’ve created… it’s compiled mostly via reviews and recommendations on Amazon, but also from our own experience. I also wanted to include books that showed more of the culture of the country, via story, rather than non-fiction books.
Chapter books for older children
Guyku: A year of Haiku for Boys – this isn’t a traditional Japanese haiku book, but it does an AMAZING job of using haiku in a way that appeals to boys!
Finally, here’s some great books that teach more about Japanese culture in a hands-on way!
