Summary 20 classic poems by Issa, Shiki, Basho, and other great Japanese haiku masters presented in English, Japanese characters, and Romaji with interpretations.
"My First Book of Haiku Poems introduces children to inspirational works of poetry and art that speak of our connection to the natural world, and of their own ability to see an entire universe in the tiniest parts of it. It pairs fresh interpretations of 20 classic poems by Issa, Shiki, Basho, and other great Japanese haiku masters with stunning original paintings that both portray and inspire a child's inner life, and open a door into the world of their own imagination. A fully bilingual children's book, My First Book of Haiku includes the original Japanese poems (in both Japanese script and Romaji form) on each page alongside the English translation to form a complete cultural experience. Each haiku poem is accompanied by a full page "dreamscape" painting that will be admired by children and adults alike. Commentaries and brief bios offer parents and teachers ready-made "food for thought" to share with young readers and stimulate a conversation about each work"-- Provided by publisher.
