I also have a similar booklet written in a lower reading level for LOWER ELEMENTARY readers called JAPAN - Learn About Japan. It has shorter passages with less content. Please check it out!
I was an American teacher who did a cultural exchange between my class and Japanese schools, and I eventually went to Japan to visit their schools! I want to share all the interesting things I think our elementary students want to know about Japan while balancing Social Studies curriculum standards.
