From the Series Count Your Way

  • Interest Level: Grade 3 - Grade 6
  • Reading Level: Grade 5

For the numbers one to ten, the Japanese language offers two sets of numbers. In Count Your Way through Japan, Jim Haskins uses the set based on Chinese numbers to count such aspects of Japanese life as Japan’s one Mount Fuji and its six yearly sumo-wrestling tournaments. Delicate full-color paintings by Martin Skoro further illustrate the depth, simplicity, and beauty of Japanese culture.
