What is bamboo’s child? That would be a baby bamboo. Because "baby bamboo" doesn't really make sense, we'll instead call this word bamboo shoots.
When this is written as 竹の子, the bamboo shoots are probably still growing in the ground. If they’re picked and cooked and ready to eat, the pronunciation is the same, but it’s usually written in other forms, such as タケノコ.
If you know the readings of the kanji for 竹 and the vocabulary for 子 you should be able to read this word as well.
Oh! A bamboo shoot is sticking out of the ground!
It's still a young bamboo shoot, isn't it?
There are lots of bamboo shoots in the mountains in April.
Bamboo shoots that haven’t come out from the ground are white and pretty delicious.
