T is For Tokyo Book
A children's book about Tokyo, Japan
Text and Illustrations by Irene Akio
As a father tells his daughter about her birthplace, he describes Tokyo in language as colorful as the glowing watercolors that showcase this vibrant city. His story is both tender and descriptive, complemented by full- and double-paged illustrations. From making wishes with daruma dolls and flying kites shaped like caterpillars to discovering the two-toed shoes of construction workers and nibbling on roasted chestnuts, Tokyo springs to life in a way guaranteed to enchant young readers and their parents. Bilingual text enhances this cultural immersion for language learners of all ages.
