Many of us are looking for Mandarin silent reading materials for our primary school aged kids! For reading before assembly and perhaps pockets of time in the school day too.
For my kids’ school, they’re required to bring English books from Mondays to Wednesdays, and Mother Tongue Language books on Thursdays and Fridays.
I realised that my child must like it enough to WANT to take it out to read, and also be ABLE to read most of the words or at least know what’s happening generally on his own.
Features that maximise enjoyment: ✅ Thin and light ✅ Age-appropriate ✅ At my child’s reading level ✅ Hanyu Pinyin aid can be helpful ✅ Interesting illustrations ✅ Funny ✅ Related to my child’s interests or life experiences ✅ Able to occupy my child for some time
