This whole set of book is such a value for money!! Was my favourite series as a kid and now my nephew love it as well! The interactive flip flaps will keep the kid's attention. Love the bilingual component. Would have been better if there's English title on the cover as well, but nothing a little labeling can't do.
Dear K, thank you for your purchase and for taking time to leave a review. Amazing that you're sharing the magic of Spot books with your nephew now, what a legacy!
My child of 3 years has always loved the English Spot the dog series and this bilingual book set is a great way to get her interested and open to reading in Mandarin as she much prefers English at this point. Since the first book, the second one has been an incentive (an alternative instead of a sweet treat (; ), and I'm so thankful that I have 16 more such educational treats to share with her!
Would have given this 5 stars if not for the peculiar structure of some of the sentences (both English and Mandarin) but we can can easily read over it, unless one is teaching reading with these books, so this is something to note if one is very particular about sentence structure. The illustrations are great and the level of the Mandarin is perfect for English-speaking parents who would otherwise need their hanyu pinyin to read to their kids.
Thanks for making this easily available in Singapore, so delivery was very fast and the item is value for money too!
小玻系列翻翻书 Spot The Dog Flip Flap Book Series (Set of 18)
My 2yo daughter loves these Spot the dog books and insists on reading them everyday. Like the bilingual English and Mandarin format, which is very simple to read. Some of the English-Mandarin sentences are a little awkward in structure/ translation but not that is too much of a concern.
Could you consider bringing in other bilingual series books such as Peppa Pig?
Thank you D for the review! Unfortunately some nuances in language cannot be properly translated, the dual language format is still really helpful for understanding though! This set is a hit in our home, sometimes I have to hide it if not the kids will just read this and nothing else! Yes, in the future we will definitely be looking at expanding our bilingual collection, to cater to bilingual parents in Singapore and beyond.
