Let's Learn Kanji: An Introduction to Radicals, Components and 250 Very Basic Kanji (Kodansha's Children's Classics)

Image of Let's Learn Kanji: An Introduction to Radicals, Components and 250 Very Basic Kanji (Kodansha's Children's Classics)
Author: Joyce Mitamura, Yasuko Kosaka Mitamura
Publisher: Kodansha USA (1998)
Binding: Paperback, 272 pages
Summary:
Everyone agrees that it is possible to learn to speak Japanese in a reasonable amount of time, but no one has ever said that about reading and writing it. It is widely held that spoken and written Japanese require separate efforts by the student, as if these two aspects were in fact distinct languages. A first step toward alleviating this situation was taken by Yasuko Mitamura in 1985 with the publication of Let's Learn Hiragana and Let's Learn Katakana, which continue to help thousands of students every year to master these two forms of Japanese script. Now, Let's Learn Kanji goes to the heart of the problem: the learning of kanji (i.e., Chinese characters as they are used in Japan). Not simply a brilliant exposition but also a workbook, it teaches the student how to write the basic strokes, how to put these together into full-fledged kanji, and how kanji function in the context of example sentences. Progress is continually checked, and the student is encouraged through quizzes and exercises. The result: 250 fundamental characters learned almost painlessly.

Let's Learn Hiragana: First Book of Basic Japanese Writing (Kodansha's Children's Classics)

Image of Let's Learn Hiragana: First Book of Basic Japanese Writing (Kodansha's Children's Classics)
Author: Yasuko Kosaka Mitamura
Publisher: Kodansha USA (1985)
Binding: Paperback, 72 pages
Summary:
There are three types of Japanese script--katakana, hiragana, and kanji. It is possible to read Japanese knowing only a limited number of kanji, but it is not possible with only a limited number of katakana or hiragana--one must know all of them. Let's Learn Hiragana, and its companion volume Let's Learn Katakana, is a textbook that introduces the learner to the basics of one of these fundamental Japanese scripts. Being a workbook, it contains all the exercises that allow the student to master hiragana by the time the book has been finished. Let's Learn Hiragana is a classic in the field, and the huge number of students that have used it successfully is a sign of its preeminence as a self-study guide.

Kanji Fast Finder

Author: Laurence Matthews
Publisher: Tuttle Publishing (2003)
Binding: Paperback, 144 pages
Summary:
This book uses a simple, non-radical-based lookup system (about which more in the last paragraph) to help you locate kanji quickly. And yes, it does that job pretty well. Determine whether your kanji divides top-bottom, left-right, etc. and narrow down the possibilities from there till you've found it. But all you've found is one to three keywords, one on reading, and one kun reading (pronunciation).
