Peak compares the behavior considered permissible at home with that required of children at preschool, and argues that the teacher is expected to be the primary agent in the child's transition. Step by step, she brings the socialization process to life, through a skillful combination of classroom observations, interviews with mothers and teachers, transcripts of classroom events, and quotations from Japanese professional literature.

Japanese two-year-olds are indulged, dependent, and undisciplined toddlers, but by the age of six they have become obedient, self-reliant, and cooperative students. When Lois Peak traveled to Japan in search of the "magical childrearing technique" behind this transformation, she discovered that the answer lies not in the family but in the preschool, where teachers gently train their pupils in proper group behavior. Using case studies drawn from two contrasting schools, Peak documents the important early stages of socialization in Japanese culture.Contrary to popular perceptions, Japanese preschools are play-centered environments that pay little attention to academic preparation. It is here that Japanese children learn their first lessons in group life. The primary goal of these cheerful--even boisterous--settings is not to teach academic facts of learning-readiness skills but to inculcate behavior and attitudes appropriate to life in public social situations.Peak compares the behavior considered permissible at home with that required of children at preschool, and argues that the teacher is expected to be the primary agent in the child's transition. Step by step, she brings the socialization process to life, through a skillful combination of classroom observations, interviews with mothers and teachers, transcripts of classroom events, and quotations from Japanese professional literature.

I sent this book to my daughter who has her three year old attending a Japanese preschool for the first time this year. The transition has not been easy due to the language difference and frustration of my daughter and granddaughter was growing day by day. I found this book on Amazon's website and according to my daughter the book has been a great help. She also said she would pass it on to the other parents whose children also attend the Japanese preschool. These children live on an Air Force Base in Tokyo. The parents thought an emersion program would be a good idea at the preschool age.

I bought the book to prepare myself for my son's entrance to Japanese preschool and found a wealth of cultural insights about the roles of Japanese mothers and Japanese schools. Based on classroom observations in both urban and rural settings and with an extensive bibliography, it is an academic work which can also be useful to foreign parents with children entering Japanese schools,
