We bring you 我会念童谣, a collection of 20 nursery rhymes for the young and old. Rhymes are so catchy and fun for kids - a great way to expand our kids' vocabulary!
A few of the rhymes within this book bring back fond memories of childhood, and I'm so excited to share them with my boys.
Some familiar rhymes include 《小白兔》，《小老鼠》，《五指歌》or better known as《一二三四五》.
Each rhyme comes with suggested actions to make it more interactive, works well for kinesthetic learners.
This rhyme is fun to learn when tasting carrots or exploring body parts. Take a trip to visit rabbits at the SPCA or pet shop nearby to see real rabbits hop about. Better still, visit a friend with a pet rabbit and ask them all sorts of questions!
We see squirrels often on our nature walks in the parks in Singapore, and have spent delightful mornings observing them. The kids love watching squirrels jump from tree to tree and check out where they are going.
Check out the other sound book on Chinese poems 《我会读古诗》
My girl rarely speaks Mandarin due to the school environment therefore it was a pleasant surprise when she started to recite the rhymes. Highly recommend!
My 22 mo girl loves reciting these rhymes. Catchy, easy to remember, and the audio sound provides another level of engagement. One of our best Chinese book buys this year.
We love this book and the entire family has learnt to sing the rhymes together.
We usually don't buy books which need batteries. But this one is beautiful - and the batteries have lasted 3 years, with lots of regular playing! The book is filled with 20 charming and catchy short rhymes, with bright graphics. Little kids will enjoy going through the book by themselves, and trying out the actions, and the sounds will not annoy adults in the house either :)
My son was 3yo and I thought this was slightly advanced for him. I still let him play around the buttons just for fun. Then one day, when we were discussing about rabbits, he can suddenly recite the rabbit poem in the book. Soon after, I realised he can do a lot! Whoa! I didnt even to through the book with him AT ALL. Everything is on his own. Hehe. Books are wonder teachers!
