Hello! This is video file is a Japanese version of “A Color of His Own’ by Leo Lionni and translated by Shuntaro Tanikawa.

The students are currently learning how to describe the color of noun including animals/leaves/flowers in Japanese through this book:


  • “Parrots are green.” => おうむは みどり。(o u mu wa mi do ri)
  • “Goldfish are red.” => きんぎょは あかい。(ki n gyo wa a ka i)

Please use this video to practice listening read aloud at home. It is perfectly fine for you to simply listen to this video. The students will improve their listening skills through watching this video multiple times at home. You and your child may also read along with me by repeating, which will help them to improve their oral language. Thank you!
