This our go-to book for introducing the real reason for Christmas to our kids!
Was fun to read the story multiple times in the days leading up to Christmas, and do a different craft each time, learning the Mandarin terms for different components of the story!
We learnt some Mandarin terms while reading and crafting together, like:
- 伯利恒 Bólìhéng - Bethlehem
- 马厩 Mǎjiù - Stable - the place where horses are kept
- 马槽 Mǎcáo - Manger - the horses' feeding trough
- 羊 Sheep
Written and illustrated by Rod Campbell, the creator of Dear Zoo!
Suitable for ages 1 and up.
Excellent book to read to the babies on the very first Christmas in Chinese! Quality board books and nice colours!
