...Because mummies have been asking us to carry some sound books!
We bring you a collection of 40 poems over 20 themes to dig deeper into Chinese culture and history!
Some familiar poems include 《清明》，《静夜思》，《枫桥夜泊》，《山村咏怀》and more.
- Comes with Hanyu Pinyin (we all need it for the more obscure words!)
- Has two Chinese characters highlighted in bigger font, that we can learn it
- Has a little explanation at the bottom of each page that allows us to understand the poem in daily language. Chinese poems can be so succinct, condensing so much meaning into a few words!
We recommend to pair the poem with similar reads or extension activity, to help our little ones relate more to the deep and beautiful poems.
Got this to introduce Chinese Poems to my 3yo cos Mama is not a Chi Poems expert. Fav part is the easy to press buttons for the kid to listen to the poem & gradually memorise (that’s what chi poems are mainly abt yea? Haha). 3yo is still pretty young, so my girl is reading after the narrator & memorising the poem’s title, poet name & period. Not bad right? Better than her mother definitely. In addition, i love that there’s a simple summary to explain the poem. The hypy also makes pronunciation easy if mama/papa is gg to read aloud.
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!
My girl was able to repeat some words after the 唐诗 and have a sneak peak into the ancient world of Chinese poems. She loved the book very much!
