5.0 out of 5 stars The Peach Boy, 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Japanese Reader Collection Volume 2: Momotaro, the Peach Boy (Paperback)
Another nice paperback from thejapanesepage.com / theJapanShop.com people. Good layout and text size and suitable for beginners and upper beginners. Free downloads are available which include E-books and sound files.
Again you’re given 3 versions of the stories to work through (there are 2 stories altogether), first you have the Japanese text with a running glossary, just Japanese and just English. There’s also furigana (small hiragana for pronunciation) above the Kanji, and a vocabulary list in the back.

Also included are a few extra grammatical notes for the 2 stories, such as a note explaining what kibidango are (dumplings made with millet), and that ‘tarou’ usually indicates a male name. There are also the Momotaro song lyrics with brief vocabulary notes and a “Kanji in Focus” section for The Tortoise and the Hare story, which is just a list of the Kanji used with English and on/kun readings.

Not as long as the Hikoichi paperback, but still very much worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice simple reader, 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Japanese Reader Collection Volume 2: Momotaro, the Peach Boy (Paperback)
The reader is really well designed and nicely put together. The Japanese text is printed twice, once with a running word list and grammar points, and again with just Japanese.

You get two stories, the traditional tale of Momotaro, the Peach Boy, and a version of The Tortoise and the Hare.

You also get to download mp3 versions of the stories, both in slow Japanese for beginners, and in natural speed.

Great value.

4.0 out of 5 stars ..., 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not read it yet, but the first volume was good.
These reviews are a pain, why is there a word requirement? If you want people to leave comments you need to make it less arduous.
