It starts off quite normal... bus picking up people... then it becomes a bit nonsensical when things start to pile up on the bus... but my little guy enjoyed it. Haha. Quite amusing to watch his eyes light up as the bus gets higher and we talk about what goes on. And then the final page was a bang! All 100 storeys! A fun book to enjoy and laugh over and let the imagination roam.
We have read 3 out of 5 books for my 3 children and they really love it. They even brought the books to school to read during reading time. My husband and I like that there's a continuation of the book about the mum and dad and their 4 adorable kids and how they bring up their kids amidst having to run a retail business. It talks about family bonding, parents' sacrificial love, parenting challenges, the importance of community etc
We can't wait to finish all books and we highly recommend this set of books for parents with young kids between 5 to 12 yr old.
The little poems and colorful pictures are enough to capture the attention of my 3yo. Good quality book!
This is a very pretty book, every page has such an attractive illustration, good for catching attention of the kids. Very informative as well, so I'm learning together with my boy! Love love love this book!
Initially, I was skeptical about translation of good classics like The Carrot Seed. However after reading it, I love it that the text is simple, with some repetition, which is important for early readers to practice without boring them. Translation was also accurate and straightforward, just like how The Carrot Seed was presented. If you are looking to kickstart home learning, introduction to Chinese, or looking for a reader-like book for your child to learn and practice new words, 《胡萝卜的种子》 definitely makes the mark. The book can be used to accompany lots of carrot- and botany-themed activities which is timely for the season of Spring. We took up the challenge to row to 《胡萝卜的种子》 AND The Carrot Seed (borrowed the English version from the library).
My 3 year old daughter loves this series! Attractive illustrations and funny facts that make learning about normal everyday stuff fun. Definitely worth every penny paid. She normally wouldn't ask us to read Mandarin books but ever since getting this series, she asks for it on a daily basis. Thanks too mystorytreasury for the personalised note that came with the books - it was a lovely touch!
Thank you Linxin for recommending me this totally funny comic! To be honest, I’ve seen it around but the cover didn’t appeal to me. But Linxin said this was good and so I got it. My reluctant Pri 2 reader gave it a side-eye while I read to her and I cajoled her to read just 1 page. Then she was poring over it during dinner and she brought it to school the next day for silent reading. A total win! The hanyu pinyin definitely helps. Plus it’s in a comic form so it’s easy to digest and funny. Even I found it funny. Now I need to get it out of her hands and read it myself.
A very simple but delightful story about buying and cooking green bean soup. My daughter( 2 yrs 4 mths) is excited to make her own green bean soup after reading this story. Highly recommend!
Good simple book on patience and the passing of time
This is a fabulous set of vehicles books. They kept my boy entertained by observing the pictures on each page. Both husband and I love this set too! The illustrations were well thought through. Love those small details. I highly recommend this set!
She loves the book. Fast delivery and lovely story. Would repurchase if in board book format. She likes it so much the pages r pretty worn out alrady with the constant rough flipping!
