I Live in Tokyo (2001) by Mari Takabayashi.
Our hearts go out to all the people who have suffered and are still suffering from the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disasters in Japan. If your kids have seen the news or heard about these terrible disasters, but do not really have a clear picture of what it might be like to live in Japan, then this book will help. Mari Takabayashi’s illustrations have all the right details of big events in every month for kids in Japan. From New Year’s to the start of school in April to summer festivals, it’s all there.
