This was an exceptional book. It really brought up the issue of cultural education from another point of view, that of a Japanese mother teaching her son about an American custom, namely celebrating Christmas. It was a good book and I'd be open to sharing it with an audience of children as a means of opening a discussion of cultural differences and mutual respect.
Also it's an unusual point of view for a Christmas story, one that would interest children. Summary: A young boy's mother is acting strange one day and she ends up telling him of a time when she lived in California, and how they celebrated Christmas. She took a tree from the backyard and placed paper cranes on it with candles, and shared this experience with him. Personal Reaction: In the first half of the book I was wondering where this story was going.
I couldn't really make any kind of conclusion of what was going on. Over all I really enjoyed it. I liked how she shared her California experience with her son. Classroom Extension Ideas: 1 I would use this book probably around Christmas time. Showing the different culture, and how in different countries people don't always celebrate just Christmas.

And how this mother wanted to share her experience of something different. Then the students will have a discussion on what each of them might do to celebrate during the holidays. They would be able to share different holidays such as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, and many more. Summary: Following a little boy's disobedience of his mother's instruction not to play in the pond, he is horrified to realize that she has dug up the tree that was planted to symbolize his life while he lays in his bed rewarming.

She decorates the tree and then proceeds to explain to him that she did not always live in Japan, but had lived in California for a portion of her life and that the tree was in celebration of the Christmas tradition. Personal Reflection: This was a great book exemplifying how what is normal tradition in one cultural seems strange to another. It also shows how where one has lived and what one has seen can impact a household.
It is a great example of respecting other traditions and not being afraid to participate in it, even if it is not from one's personal set of beliefs. Classroom Extension: - Would be a great addition to a unit involving study of various winter traditions - Could be used to help students understand the importance of learning about other cultures and keeping an open mind when things seem strange to them.
This book is about a little boy who lives in Japan. His mother tells him that before she met his father she lived in California. In California they celebrated what was called Christmas, when celebrating this they would decorate a tree. So she decorated a tree for him and let him celebrate his first Christmas. This book shows that no matter where you are you can still celebrate the holidays. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.
