5.0 out of 5 stars Add Japanese vocabulary the fun way. 22 May 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Although most of us relate picture dictionaries to children, but this picture dictionary is suitable even for adults who are learning Japanese. There are about 1,500 words to be learnt on various subjects. Name of things in the classrooms, outdoors, bank, post office, jobs, space, pre-historical things, prepositions, adjectives, common verbs, numbers etc.

There are a few other Japanese picture dictionaries out there. But the reason I chose this one was simply because, it was the only one I saw comes complete with romaji, Kana and kanji and also the English translation.

When ever I have a few minutes to spare I just take this book out and memorize a few more words. I find it easier to remember with the help of some illustrations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Picture This 15 Nov 2009
My first impression right out of the box was a positive one. It is a sturdily bound hard back, in a traditional picture book size (i.e. not these newer scaled down flimsy sizes), and the pages are of excellent stock. They look to be well suited to many page turnings and the rougher handling of children. Inside, colourful, engaging pictures depicting over 30 scenes appear. The pictures have no writing on them; instead to the side and underneath, individual items from the pictures are presented like clip art. The word for this is in English, followed by the Japanese word in romaji (Romanised letters), and followed by it written in actual Japanese. This is where as a book for children, it comes a bit unstuck. They use kanji. It would have been much more helpful to leave out the romaji and write the word in kana, then in the kanji, or to also include the kana with the romaji and kanji. It is a small niggle, but one worth mentioning as it has frustrated my children, though I have pointed out to them that having the romaji, they know what to write in the kana, as kana is phonetic, and therefore, you simply write the sounds down romaji is basically the phonetic spelling using Romanised letters).

The vocabulary on offer is well considered in itself, however. From around the house, to the four seasons, to a farm, to the high street, and even all the way to outer space, there are well over 1500 words that children may encounter or wish to know. Nor is finding the word you are wanting limited to flicking through page after page of pictorial scenes. The back of the book has a traditional glossary and index. One may look up the word either in romaji or in English, and there find its other half so to speak, as well as the page number you can find it depicted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice bilingual dictionary 6 Jun 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I brought this from my son and I quite like it, the pictures are clear and friendly, not just covering nouns like you might expect, it also covers things like prepositions (around, into, etc...). Each work has the English (US) and Japanese (which is in romaji, latin script, and Japanese script).

This book is aimed at western children and covers words which they are likely to be familiar with such as bed. It doesn't attempt to teach Japanese cultural items such as futon which the reader may be unfamiliar with.

This is an American book and no attempt has been made to anglicise it so many of the English words are different to those we in the UK (and probably other countries) would use but this book is for learning Japanese not English so these words are not the important things here.

I did find a few of the items to be in rather odd categories and not in the obvious place but for the most part, this is a great little picture dictionary for children learning Japanese.

I bought it for my daughter and she finds it useful. She has an ordinary dictionary as well but the pictures make the words easier to learn.

3.0 out of 5 stars Japanese Picture Dictionary 24 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It's ok but very busy! Rather alot going on on each page. I'm sure for most children they would not find this a problem, but for a special needs child it is a little confusing.
