Hi! Welcome to my website! AKAEHO is this site’s name. I make many picture books as a hoby, especially for babies. In Japanese, baby is “aka-chan(あかちゃん)” and picture books is “ehon(えほん)”. So I named my site “AKA-CHAN EHON’s web library”, and then, for short, “AKAEHO (あかえほ)”!
THE REASON WHY I STARTED TO MAKE PICTURE BOOKS
I used to live in Germany about 3 years, because of my husband’s work. While living there, I gave birth to a daughter.
Japanese picture books were too expensive to buy, so I started make picture books myself using free stock illustrations.
I think threre are lots of people who want free picture books in the world. So I decided to publish my picture books online for free download.
YOU CAN READ ALL PICTURE BOOKS ONLINE, ALSO DOWNLOAD PDF FILES FOR FREE!
AKAEHO’s picture books are available online. No registration or fee is required. You can read on PC, tablet, mobile like a paper book.
All picture books also available in PDF files. You can save the PDF files on your personal folder, then available offline. Or print out them, you can make paper picture books!
4 TYPES OF PICTURE BOOKS ARE AVAILABLE
White-black-red picture books – especially for babies
Character / words picture books – for children, or as Japanese learning
Intellectual training books – for children, or as Japanese learning
Story books – short and simple stories
Play books – a kind of word games, or coloring books, etc. (now Japanese only, coming soon)
PICTURE BOOKS ARE ABOUT 4 – 10 PAGES
If you want to print out picture books, you needs only 2 – 5 sheets of A4 sized papers. I don’t write long stories. Rather than reading a long book, I want you or your children to read short books again and again.
I am really happy if you enjoyed my picture books!
