lots of spelling mistakes in English - could do with a better proofread - which makes me worry the Japanese could be incorrect. I will be using it with a pinch of salt and looking up phrases anyway for more indepth knowledge and for potential variations.
Good looking book, not too thick. Useful to keep your eye away from the screen for a bit, and thick blocks of text in the dictionary! In a good, logical order too, which can really help with kickstarting learning from scratch.

"…I was expecting just pictures and words; not phrases, audio, and some history, too! I'm very impressed…This book would also be good for children and adults learning English, as it can of course be used in 'reverse.'"― Castle View Academy

Easy way to learn some basicsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 January 2021
Bought it for a gift and Iam happy about it
Muy buenoReviewed in Mexico on 4 January 2021
Mi hija esa interesada en aprender Japones, le compré este libro, sólo que esta diseñado para los niños que su lengua materna es el Ingles, supongo que es por el tema de la pronunciación. Lo compré pensando que mi hija no le afectaría, ya que lo estudia y habla pero creo que hubiera sido mejor comprar uno donde la lengua materna sea el Español. Me ha salvado que viene con audio libro.

Extremely useful for learningReviewed in India on 12 August 2021
If your intetested in learning Japanese or already know few basic japanese, this is the book. The audio link doesnt work, but the book as such is very informative, colourful. It is extremely important to hear the Japanese pronunciations as it is very different. I used the google translator to hear the pronunciations. I hope the Audio book link could actually work.
Love the layout of this book.Reviewed in Canada on 18 December 2020
My son is teaching himself Japanese as a second language. I am an elementary school teacher and I really like the layout of this book. The pictures are a good size and the colors are bright, it's an inviting book. It is helping him to learn Japanese? I am not sure, we'll see in time!
