The Way We Do It In Japan

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.

  1. Wondering, I purchased your book YEARS ago. Object Lessons with Origami…would it be possible for me to copy the lessons and send them to a couple of my grand children? We are working on an evangelism project and your books would be helpful to have each of us with a copy. Thank you for your consideration in this matter. Sincerely, Gail Easling

    1. Sorry to be sooooo slow in responding. Since you bought the book, I’m ok with you copying a few direction pages for teaching purposes. It’s too late for this past year, but maybe in the future.

  2. By the Way..thank you for the wonderful lessons in the book…excited about challenging ourselves and the grand children to use the stories and paper folding to reach children and their families for Jesus! Great tool!
