My First Japanese Kanji Book: Learning Kanji the fun and easy way!, Book & CD, (Japanese-English)
by Eriko Sato & Anna Sato
My first Japnese Kanji Book is an inventive and unique introduction to kanji for children. Written by the mother-daughter team of Eriko and Anna Sato, this lovely book introduces 109 kanji characters to children with poems and illustrations. It includes all the Japanese Government specified first grade level kanji characters and a sprinkling of simple second to sixth grade characters.
"This book very carefully organizes important kanji characters so that young learners can easily continue learning kanji. For example, easy kanji, like numbers, the sun, the moon, etc. are introduced before slightly complex kanji, and one lesson introduces only a few kanji that are used in the same poem. My students memorized many poems in the book. Because the poems are short, they can recite them by heart, and can write one poem a day from their memory. This way, they can regularly practice and review kanji and hiragana."
