三胞成语乐园 Yeah! Chinese Idioms (Set of 2)
Highly recommended for local primary school students!
Join triplets 新新、加加、坡坡 in their daily family life,
and hear about their fun adventures with their parents and grandparents.
They're born in the year of the Tiger,
and there are some references to it throughout the comics which is really interesting!
If your family has enjoyed Nao Nao comics, this is similar
and some may enjoy these even more!
Why we love this Chinese idioms comics series
✅ It's great to see how a family uses Chinese idioms in their daily speech, and modelling it for us!
✅ Illustrations are funny and some of the characters' expressions are so comical! I'd hear my kids laughing away while reading on their own
✅ Content and scenarios are based on Singaporean family life, very relatable! Reflects daily life in modern Singapore eg MRT doors closing (Book 1 pg 21), supermarket (Book 1 pg 39), 听写 paper (Book 1 pg 67), crossing the road (Book 2 pg 41). Some of the words that the parents say, are what we'd really say in real life!
✅ Stories contain lots of high frequency Chinese characters, definitely overlapping what they learn in school
✅ Stories are told from the child's point of view, something they can definitely identify with!
✅ Pictures give contextual clues, so kids can follow the storyline on their own even it they can't read every single character. Confidence booster!
✅ Stories are very short and sweet
✅ Simple language used in conversations
✅ Shows care and family interactions between members of 3 generations. 三代同堂的喜怒哀乐!
