The first set that I read to him was the feeling book. Aside from the texts, i also included some actions to come along with it so that he could understand the non-verbal communications as well. He loves it. It's the favourite book for a long while.
My son loves imitating the actions made by the different animals. This made reading the books much more fun as he can also participates in action
I was initially worried this could be too academic for my almost 3yo son. Turned out he kept reaching out to the box to practice the strokes and all the card letters. Amazingly, he is able to follow and does the right sequence easily! The box also comes with an instruction manual, which is very helpful in explaining about the strokes and how to teach. I didnt remember going to such basics when I learnt Chinese.
My son loves this series a lot. At first, I thought the story was too simple and some sentences are in repetition. But he loves it!!! He can read it like 2-3x per set per day and he applies some of the things mentioned in the book such as asking friends what they have for lunch, requesting tissue after poop, tidy up and said "收起来", etc. It is good to see that he applies what he learns in the book. It is very simple to me but very engaging and beneficial to him. Sometimes i tend to forget the end user is him.so yes, i will recommend this book to young kids!
My daughter instinctly put her finger on the strokes and had fun tracing the cards! She couldn’t wait to continue! The cards includes some suggested games to help parents and child learn together! Can’t wait to use it!
My 2.5yo is in love with this and has been singing / bobbing to the tunes! Thanks for bringing in such an awesome "book"!
为了让1岁的小女儿对中文有兴趣，我选择了这本发生书。可爱的声响和朗朗上口的儿歌，不止小女儿爱，连4.5 岁的大女儿和 3 岁的儿子都喜欢。
Just received this audiobook and am intrigued by the chinese tunes! I’ve never heard any of them before so I’m excited to learn them along with my son. I really like that musical notation for the tunes are provided so I can have the option of playing them on the piano and do live singing. I also appreciate that there’s an instrumental version to the tunes! Volume is adjustable. Overall, versatile as a learning resource and easy to use. Simple start/stop function :)
My two-year-old toddler loves the book! He would repeat after the audio recitation and he enjoys exploring the different pictorial buttons on the book. :) Thank you!
The minimal text repeated throughout the book works great for new learners of the language (myself included!). My daughter was able to pick up the words fairly quickly due to the repetition. She now uses them on me when she wants me to wait for her haha! Beautiful graphics. And beautiful storyline too - that sometimes it is worth slowing down to savour the moment. It spoke to me as a parent. Kids grow up so fast. It’s good to sometimes slow down and enjoy them while we can. Thanks Linxin, this is one of my favourite books!
Both my kids love this so much! My 1 year old enjoys bobbing to the music and it keeps him entirely entertained during his mealtimes. I’ve also caught my 3 year old playing the familiar tunes to herself (eg Old MacDonald) to listen to the lyrics in Mandarin. A great way to get kids interested in the language all on their own. Thanks Linxin!
I love how this book shows so many scenarios of every day courage that children across ages can relate to. My daughter was so happy (and proud) to learn that even eating her vegetables can be considered an act of bravery. It has helped her adopt a more positive perspective on things too. Thank you, Linxin! : )
Really love how bilingual the books are. Universal acceptance and peace promoted. Awesome
Linxin introduced me to the idea of soundbooks and I think they're a really helpful tool. Would have paid a lot more for this.
Bought for godson- love the fun rhymes!
It is a very interactive book that invites questions from my 6-year-old boy and is a good chinese conversation starter.
My baby girl loves it so much! She loves dancing to the music and pressing the percussion buttons. Been looking for books with actual singing instead of just background music for a while now and this book is such a rare find! Thanks for bringing in this title!
My baby girl loves the book and keeps imitating the sound made by the different animals. Very satisfied with the purchase!
This book is about how there are many different versions of family (1 to 10 specifically), and I like how each number from 1 to 10 is represented in different forms in each page. The paragraphs are short and to the point, yet they hold different layers of meaning. It was also fun counting and looking for the various objects and people! A very meaningful book - a must get to introduce the idea of family, counting and 人!
lovely graphics and meaningful way to learn the stories!
Enjoyed this book!
Not only a reference book but it also attracts my daughter attention and interest in writing.
A must-have book for a beginner.
This is the very first book I bought from the seller.
Love this book and is easy to read to your litte ones and a book that encourages bonding session.
This book come with a basic number card that can teach young one counting in Chinese.
Not only that it also expands the vocabulary.
An informative book that gives you information about all kinds of people, houses, etc..
My daughter loves the bright illustrations and the flips of each the windows to see what others are doing and a small baby cradle that can move side to side.
Beautiful and educational
Bought this book for my dinosaur loving, Mandarin learning, Indian husband. We love the graphics and the vocab is very relevant. I did not expect to feel sympathy for a cartoon dinosaur but I did...!
My children have a better understanding of what is Mid Autumn Festival. Great story to share with them!!!
I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the comic was very engaging and captivating, even to me as an adult! There were a few moments I couldn't help but laugh out loud myself. Having the HYPY also made it much easier for my son to try to read on his own.
This gorgeous pop up book adds so much beauty and fun to what we have been learning about Mid Autumn Festival, and the moon! The illustrations are superbly detailed and intricate, and it’s just so pleasing on the eyes.
I especially enjoy turning the moon to go through its various phases, and how there are lanterns depicting 灯谜 🏮at the back, with the different poem verses with 月 inside. Too beautiful not to have!
Most kids would already know some of the songs in English! To hear them in Chinese will make them interested and want to learn more! A great way to learn through singing and dancing!! My 2YO and 6MO love it!
My girl is 2YO and she been very resistant to Chinese language since we started wanting to expose her to more! She love English books and would always sit and read but Chinese books have not been well received for her. I am very glad that lixin introduces me to some sound books that are Chinese! We used it as a trigger to get her interested and excited about Chinese books and I must say it works! After about 1month or so of working with her using the materials we got from My Story Treasury, she have started to pick up some Chinese words and would dance to Chinese sounds! Thank you Lixin and thank you My Story Treasury! I will definitely come back for more books!!
This book is not only for children and is a book for adult. An interactive book that capture your attention in finding out more.
Suitable to those who wants to learn more on how chinese character are form.
We have always enjoyed good stories. We loved books written by author 保冬妮, every story comes with beautiful illustrations and rich chinese culture. Story Treasury has a very good curated selection of chinese culture books.
