The book is about a boy whose father is Japanese and whose mother is American They end up moving to Japan where the culture is different from what he is used to I believe this would be a book that could be used for any new students that may come into the classroom who have come from another country It could also be used on the first day of school whether or not there is a student present in class who is new to the country to set up classroom rules An activity could be The Way We Do It In insert [...]

Through the eyes of an American boy, we see what it is like to leave San Francisco and start to live in Japan He learns the way that people do things in Japan, like eat, sleep, and go to school This is a fun book that explores another culture through activities that children would understand It might make a good read for classes with an international population where students could talk about how they live in their home country or for areas where families have been stationed in Japan.

This is such a sweet book Gregory must move to Japan because his fathers job relocates the family Greg comes from a multiracial family where his mother is American and his father is Japanese, and his father teaches him the way we do it in Japan This is a must read for children who have friends in their class from other cultures Great ending as well

Good for families for new readers or youngerWe are moving to Japan and we have a toddler and some of this applies to him but mostly for young school age children I wish it was longer but this is a good size for that age group I would enjoy this as a series.

I liked this pb because it pointed out all those kinds of cultural differences between the US and Japan or any other country for that matter that the casual US tourist will never see, yet are so important.
