Words to Make a Friend: a Story in Japanese and English
Napoli, Donna Jo & Stoop, Naoko
How will these two girls have any fun at all? As it turns out, it's not that hard when both girls are looking for a friend! What starts with a simple "hello" and "konnichiwa" becomes a day filled with fun in the snow.
Each girl's love of play, snow, and making a new friend transcends the need to speak the same language, and by using simple words in their own languages, along with a bit of charades, the girls find they have all they need to build a snow creature.
An important book to show children that speaking the same language isn't a prerequisite to making a new friend.
