Read full description of the books:



“Tanuki’s Gift” is a Japanese fictional tale about a priest and animal, tanuki. It tells of how during one winter, a priest provides shelter for the tanuki and how the two becomes close friends. During the process of the tanuki trying to repay the priest for his friendship, they both learn a lesson. I would use this story to teach the students about friendship and how it is not an object to be bought or sold (example- the priest realizes he values tanuki’s friendship more than monetary gifts). This book could also be used to showcase kindness and helping others in need (ex. the priest providing shelter to the tanuki in need). This story also introduces the students to the Japanese culture and religion. Although the author, Tim Meyers, is not a Japanese American, his efforts and support from others have made this story into a valuable folktale.
