Words to Make a Friend: A Story in Japanese and English

Donna Jo Napoli
(Juvenile Picture Books - Ej Nap)

When a young Japanese girl moves into her new house, she is happy to see a girl her age playing in the snow just outside her window. The only problem is the Japanese girl doesn't speak English and the American girl doesn't speak Japanese. But each girl's love of the snow teaches them that they don't need to speak the same language to have fun!
