汉字是画出来的 Like Pictures Like Chinese

The book brought insights into many basic written mandarin words. My children (5-6yos) had fun guessing each picture and celebrated when they guessed it correctly; and took time to understand why a certain word is drawn in a particular manner when they didn't. Adults and children alike can enjoy the book together.
