This book tells the story of Gregory, whose Japanese father is transferred from San Francisco to Tokyo. Gregory and his mom stand in wide-eyed surprise when they experience a series of unexpected situations, as they learn about The Way We Do It In Japan. Their transition to the Japanese way of life is amusing, factual and informative.
Gregory experiences the usual anxiety, “Will the other children like me?” In addition, he suffers through the insecurity of not knowing how to behave in a culture different from his own. It ends with the pizzazz of an unexpected twist from the writer’s experience with her own son in Japan.
This book makes a wonderful addition to children’s understanding of the Japanese culture and is an excellent addition to a unit of study on Japan or the Orient.
