I want to teach my children how to express their feelings in Japanese. My daughter will begin attending a Japanese School soon, so I want her to be able to communicate what she is feeling to others. I don’t have any books that teach what I want her to know, so I decided to make my own book! I used images from The Droplet Project, added words, then got them made into a bound booklet using Snapfish.com. The project only cost me about $5, including shipping!

(All of these images are from the Droplet Project, with permission)

1) I am sorry. ごめんなさい。Gomennasai.

You are watching: I am sad in japanese

2) I am scared. こわい。Kowai.

3) I am sad. かなしい。Kanashii.

4) I am hungry. おなかすきました。Onaka sukimashita.

5) I am happy. うれしい。Ureshii.

6) I am confused. わかりません。Wakarimasen.

7) I am angry. おこっています。Okotteimasu.

Are there any other emotions that you think a preschooler should know how to say?

Hi, I am a toddler’s mom and would like to make some books for my son. I like the feeling book you made. My question is how you had it print on snapfish. I know we can have a photobook done by this site. However, I am not sure if this site can print photos with words arranged like you did.

My another questions is about learning Japanese. I want to start to teach my son Japanese. However, my native language is Chinese and I do not speak Japanese at all. I wonder if you can recommend some educational DVDs which start with single words so that my son can follow. I am not sure if you know the program “Your baby can read.” My son loves this program and learned to read several English words from the program. I am wondering if you know any Japanese programs are like that.

I like your blog. Keep up your good work!!
