Bilingual children's picture book (Japanese ? English), with audiobook for download
"The Wild Swans" by Hans Christian Andersen is, with good reason, one of the world's most popular fairy tales. In its timeless form it addresses the issues out of which human dramas are made: fear, bravery, love, betrayal, separation and reunion.
The edition at hand is a lovingly illustrated picture book recounting Andersen?s fairy tale in a sensitive and child-friendly form. It has been translated into a multitude of languages and is available as a bilingual edition in all conceivable combinations of these languages.
Listen to the story read by native speakers! Within the book you'll find a link that gives you free access to audiobooks in both languages.
NEW: With printable coloring pages! A download link in the book gives you free access to the pictures from the story to color in.
For Students of Japanese: We use a set of simple Kanji in the Japanese text of the book, beside Hiragana and Katakana. For beginners these Kanji are transcribed with Hiragana characters. In the appendix you will find the entire text of the book using the complete Kanji character set, as well as a latin transcription (Romaji) and a table of Hiragana and Katakana.
