This a bookset jam-packed with tons of information on how to encourage kids to 多讲华语! I really appreciate how the books pace the gradual introduction of Mandarin terms, and pair them with really adorable illustrations! The visuals are sure to catch the attention of young ones.
One of my boys' favorite books is the one on 象声词训练 - with the most extensive list of Mandarin Onomatopoeia words I've ever seen! As we were reading the book, and admiring the pictures, trying to vocalise the sound effects - we realised together that many of the Onomatopoeia words have 口字旁. This was an Aha! moment for us, and it definitely makes learning Mandarin more fun for my kids.
This is one set that I foresee has mileage, and I use it like a reference and fun reading material as my kids progress with their systematic Mandarin learning curriculum 四五快读! I especially like it that when used well, this set can build their confidence in reading, and target specific skills.
