"While the text includes factual information about customs, food, games, festivals, and other cultural topics, the narrative is conversational. Soft, appealing cartoon illustrations of the cuddly, expressive cats dressed in traditional Japanese clothing are full of detail and humor." —School Library Journal

"But the real value of this book is the masterful way it combines loads of vocabulary words and customs with the tenderness of the author's memories and the hilarious and busy drawings, making it a treat for both younger and older kids. And for anyone who wonders how life in Japan used to be when people lived closer to the earth, the seasons and each other, this is a sweet, fun, entertaining primer." —The Japan Times

"Japanese Traditions is completely charming. Children, parents, and teachers will enjoy perusing the playful illustrations and learning about traditional Japanese culture." —Leslie Swartz, Senior VP, Boston Children's Museum and co-author of Moonbeams, Dumplings & Dragon Boats

Japanese Traditions is exactly the kind of book worth curling up with in a warm place with your child. It's a friendly, nostalgic look at the country, filled with the bustling details of the everyday life of Japanese families in the countryside as they experience it twelve months of the year." —Paper Tigers

"Setsu Broderick's book Japanese Traditions: Rice Cakes, Cherry Blossoms and Matsuri is another one that I would recommend. As may be expected, it focuses on various customs, including those that involve cherry blossoms." —Killeen Gonzalez, Yahoo! Voices


Packed with colorful illustrations and fun facts about Japanese culture, celebrations, language and history, this multicultural children's books will delight children and parents alike!

A wonderful look at Japanese culture and family life, Japanese Traditions is an intricately illustrated romp through the childhood reminiscences of author/illustrator Setsu Broderick. Told via a series of short text blocks and lighthearted illustrations based on cats, Japanese Traditions displays seasonal festivals and activities such as O-Bon (Festival of the Souls), O-hanami (cherry blossom viewing) and preparing for the New Year.

While enjoying the charming illustrations of a family of Japanese cats, the author shares her warm childhood memories of many Japanese customs, such as gathering around the kotatsu (heated table) to stay warm, throwing soybeans to keep away ogres and hanging handmade teru-teru-bozu (fine-weather) dolls out the window to stop the rain. There are also many traditional Japanese foods, toys, games and celebrations taught through the illustrations. All in all, Japanese Traditions provides a magical feast for children of all ages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A FUN way to Learn Traditional Japanese Culture 6. Juni 2010
Von rainbeads - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
My mom grew up in the same time period as the author/illustrator. I was fortunate to visit Japan as a young girl in the early 60's when many of these same household items were being used and before the advent of all of the current cool Japanese electronic gadgets. The detail in each illustration is incredible. Each time I open the book I see something I had missed earlier. I was impressed and astounded with even the tiniest details ... take a close look at the calendars ... the pinheads (a flat flower) on the pin cushion ... and oh myyyyy using cats instead of people. The cats make it so much easier and fun for kids to enjoy this book! So many of these things are obsolete ... the old style rice cooker, heating the bath with a log burning fire, the water jug hand washer ... what a joy to see them again in this book. Buy it, enjoy it, learn about these traditions, share it, enjoy it again :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen CATalyst for Learning Japanese Traditions 3. Oktober 2011
Von MemeBebe - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Kudos to Setsu Broderick's kawaii illustrations! She not only captures perfectly the Japanese affinity for cats (think: Hello Kitty and Maneki-Neko) through her own original cat family characters, but she also infuses so many thoughtful expressions of traditional every day and celebratory life in such loving and accurate detail. One such example that warmed my heart and prompted me to write this review is of mochi rice cakes puffing up as they grill on an old-fashion hibachi. My two-year-old son and I enjoy identifying the various Japanese items and events, while delighting in each and every cat's unique personality.

The chapters are organized by month and highlight a festival and/or community activity with simplicity, but again with such detail. And the wonderful sidebars range from things like instruction on the more popular origami (paper folding) to information on the lesser known kami-shibai (paper drama). This book is a treasury of traditional Japanese culture for all ages... It's a treasure in our family.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Share a storybook about traditional Japanese ways for kids 13. September 2010
Von K. Jordan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Though we are an gaijin family, my children attend Japanese schools. I love finding books about Japan in English to share with them. The pictures in this one and all the details about different celebrations and traditions for each month are great for sharing. My kids (5 yoa & 6 yoa) ask for the "February" pages over and over again.
