Japanese Nursery Rhymes: Carp Streamers, Falling Rain, and Other Traditional Favourites & Audio CD
What better way to learn a new language than through rhymes and music? Everywhere in the world, there are poems and songs especially for children--rhymes that are sung from generation to generation and never forgotten. In Japan, nursery rhymes speak of nature, of everyday joys, and of Japan's own special culture. In Japanese Nursery Rhymes fifteen well-loved verses are colorfully presented in a format that makes language learning easier. The included audio CD features kids and parents singing along in both Japanese and English. These songs are so lively and sweet, you'll find yourself singing along! For preschoolers and beyond, this book will be a joy to the mind, the eye, the ear and the heart.
