I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review a copy of Adventures of Ai by Craig T. Bouchard.
I really enjoyed this book and will be adding it to my read aloud list. This book would probably be a little difficult for reading groups for my 4th graders, but I think it will make a great read aloud.
We have been talking a lot about different cultures in class and the setting of this book is in Japan, making it perfect for discussion.
The book starts out with a dad telling a bedtime story to his children about a family in Tokyo, Japan, and then goes back 500 years to tell the story of a young girl named Ai who lived in 1514. The story tells about the adventures of Ai and the lessons she learns along the way.
The book also has a video game that can be downloaded for free. Check out the book and video game trailer below.
Here is a link to the video game if you are interested: Adventures of Ai video game.
