Read full description of the books How My Parents Learned to Eat:This was a great little book about a Japanese-American girl whose parents both learned how to eat with each other. Her dad was an American soldier in Japan who fell in love with her Japanese mom. He never asked her to dinner because he was too worried he could not eat with chopsticks. The mom thought that he did not ask her to dinner because he would think she did not know how to use a knife and fork. So they both secretly learned how to eat in the different ways. The dad tried chopsticks and the mom learned to eat the English way. Then they went to dinner and he taught her the American way to eat and she agreed to show him how to use chopsticks. So in their home their daughter is accustomed to using either knife and fork or chopsticks.
This is a picture book. There are words to go along with every picture in the book. The story is told equally through pictures and words.
This book would be a cute way for younger learners to learn about Japanese culture. They can look at the pictures of the Japanese city and see the different kids of food that they were eating. This would also be a great way to move into learning about the different cultures of the students in the class. We could start talking about all of the different food and ways of eating and move on from there. I think this would be a good book for about 2-3 graders.
