Review: How My Parents Learned to Eat by Ina R. Friedman

Synopsis: An American Sailor courts a Japanese Schoolgirl, and each secretly tries to learn the way to other person eats.

Review: This is cute, sweet, story. John and Aiko love each other but are worried about embarrassing the other, because John doesn't know how to use chopsticks and Aiko doesn't know how to use a fork and knife. To see them attempt to learn to other person's ways is endearing and fun. I love the mix of culture and romance. Allen Say does an excellent job of illustrating the story - soft colors and lovely detail. I highly recommend this book for kids - with it's humor and good lesson, I think most kids will enjoy it.
