6/365 #每日共读 #1 《山羊蛋糕店》 The little one chose this to bring to East Coast Park to read! Part of his favorite Animal Village 动物村 Series, this title stands out to him the most because he loves.... FOOD! Pancakes, ice cream sundaes, swiss rolls make for hours of imaginative play, when he incorporates what he reads to playtime. His favourite page has got to be the birthday cake, he will sing the birthday song in Mandarin without fail with a wide smile. Sometimes the boys don't finish the entire book in one sitting, and I'm okay with it. Sometimes they zoom to their favourite pages or just flip through. At times they only have stamina to discuss one page or one concept in depth. Many times they'll be eager to finish the whole book in one sitting. As long we we are exposed to great Mandarin books on a daily basis, it will be natural for us to love Mandarin and use Mandarin in our daily lives! As my elder boy's Chinese teacher shares, “重点是不要抹杀, 而是培养他们对华文的兴趣!” It's important not to kill their interest, but nurture a love for Mandarin! Title available on our webstore ➡️⬅️

A must read for cake lovers

My son adores this book! The illustrations are cute and the story is easy to understand for a 2-3 year old. I got the whole series after I read this one.

Great read!

My 2 year old toddler loves this book! The story is simple yet engaging and the illustrations (of the pastries, especially) are eye-catching. Thinking of getting the other ones in the series!

Somewhat confusing

Updated review 31/7/20 ★★★★★
I love the story of this book and I enjoyed how the book has different page sizes. It’s a good book to introduce different animals in Chinese and I love the twist at the end of the story where the goat ran out of ideas but his little helper came to the rescue!

Initial review ★★★
The sequence of the story was quite confusing, not sure if the pages were printed wrongly. The story didn’t really flow. Other than that, illustrations were beautiful, words were little per page, very child-friendly to read :)
