Two Versions Of Japanese:
This book is for bilingual language learning. It is edited in two versions. Considerations in the editing are following differences between English and Japanese grammar.
Pronouns (I, you, he, she, me, him, her, etc.) are often dropped in the subject and/or object as well as in the possessive form in Japanese.
There are different verb forms: polite, simple, dictionary form, etc., besides verb conjugations.
Finally, there are sentence-ending particles to convey nuances.
In the text, the first line in bold letters uses children’s language, which is not generally taught in Japanese learning books. The second line in smaller letters includes pronouns and uses a polite form which is typically taught in Japanese language textbooks.
For all kids learning English or Japanese as a second language.

Our kids are growing up in a society that is increasingly bilingual. It’s time to introduce second-language concepts to the youngest, even at a very early age. With our publishing catalog, we are primarily interested in offering new experiences and making suggestions for new perspectives of the world – also in the fantastic and magical.
