Week 6 Reading Diary A: Japanese Mythology Unit

I think it is so interesting to go to different parts of the world each week. Every unit has a different style. It's amazing to see so many different takes on story telling. This week in this unit has very flowery language. It is cool to see how they make everyone of the gods seem so larger than life. They aren't as human as some of the other character's I've read about. I do like that you see jealousy in the gods over the mother loving her earth children more than them. It is interesting to see how gods are portrayed throughout different cultures. I can't wait to read the other half of this story to see how they describe them throughout the whole story.
