I read that begginers to the language should start reading Japanese children's books,
since they will be written in mostly hirigana.
Does anyone know where I can find Japanese children's books online?
or any other sources that will help me read hirigana?

How can I know If I'm using the word girls only uses? Like the "I" of girls is watashi and for boys ore or boku?


Watashi.... watashi are usable for Girls ad Boys.... in a Formal way...

Atashi is used for Girls only... in impolite way

Boku are usable for Guys in impolite way...
But Boku can be used by Girls.... but mind you the severe old person is angry that girls uses "Boku".But young persons doesn't worry about it so much.According to circumstances, when a young girl uses "Boku",cuteness can be produced.Unisex becomes popular among young people in Japan.Especially, it is effective in not the sentence mark but the conversation.It might feel even healthy amorousness when pronouncing "Boku" in the voice of a young girl.You should use it properly by the situation.When standing on ceremony : You should use "Watashi".In daily life : You can use "Watashi" or "Atashi".

Conversation with friend who understands you well : You can use "Atashi" or "Boku".
When your boyfriend is liking boyish girl : You can use "Boku".
When you fight against the enemy or
you have changed sex and loved female as a male : You can use "Ore".
...Female characters of the cartoon who is stronger and bigger than male, use "Ore".

N = M

Senpai= Sempai

When saying desu does one need to say "des-uh" or is "dess" okay? Emphasis on the "u" is subtle. Too subtle to even hear. So I wonder....

desu=des
