This is another children's book I made for Japanese class. I gave my teacher the idea after I showed him the one I made for biology. (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111861.0;topicseen) Needless to say, my friends were mad, because he wasn't originally going to give us a post-final project. Oops Roll Eyes

I couldn't think of a story, so I decided to just do a learning type book, and for some reason chose fruit as a subject. It took a little while to plan out, but I like the finished result and the cute little fruits! And of course, a happy little moral, too. The translations aren't exact, but you get the idea. The fruits are labeled, but hopefully you can tell what they are anyway. (Sorry for the terrible lighting in the pictures!) EDIT: pictures fixed for color quality and size. The liighting's still not great, but my camera is out of batteries...

Cover. The title says "Happy fruit!" The author's name is Photoshop'd out as her mother is paranoid.

Left: "There are many kinds of fruit. Everyone is different." Right: "Fruits are all different colors."

Left: "There are red ones, orange ones, and yellow ones." Right: "There are also green ones, blue ones, and purple ones."

Left: "There are big ones." Right: "And there are little ones, too."

Left: "There are long, skinny ones." Right: "And, there are also round, fat ones."

Left: "Further, there are odd-shaped ones!" Right: "Their insides are not the same."

Inside of the kiwi.

Inside of the grapefruit.

Left: "Fruits come from different places (in the world)." Right: "But, they are all sweet and are friends."

So, moral of the story is, we're all different in lots of ways, but we can all be friends and love each other. Awww.  Cheesy

What an adoreable little book! I love how you even had little interactive parts like where they flip up the fruit to reveal the insides. And the last page is just too cute!

Just got flaked on for personal swaps so I am taking a break. ^_^; sorry everyone.

I looked at your biology book, too, and you are very talented!  I like the way you incorporated the theme of friendship.

Too cute!  If I had children and they knew Japanese, I would buy it.
