Reading aloud is a pleasure 
for children and adults alike! 

Birgit will read the Shel Silverstein classic, "The Giving Tree" and Akiko Hishiyama will read two different Japanese translations of the same book. 

They will also read a Japanese version and an English translation of “Issunboshi”.

If you are interested in practicing your English or Japanese comprehension, or in comparing how the same story and its message are conveyed in different languages and translations, please join us for this special event.
