A wonderful reader for all ages! Harry Collins is a Master author!!
A great little book for second language learners. Also gives us Americans an interesting view of some our customs. A great jumping off place for cultural discussions with our short-term Japanese program. Each student received a copy to take home to Japan. One person found this helpful.

Pictures and samples are fun to teach. Idioms are always fun to do.
