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.
A wonderful and succinct Christmas nativity story in Mandarin. I love the beautiful Mandarin translation in this book and the new vocabulary my toddler daughter picked up from there. It’s her favourite bedtime story book since 2 weeks before Christmas when we first presented it to her, up till now - 3 weeks after Christmas! We love the graphics too.. And even used it as inspiration to recreate a nativity scene craft on a Christmas play date! Awesome buy!
Both my son and daughter love this Chinese Christmas book, and we highly recommend it for young children! Great quality, too - very sturdy!
Excellent book to read to the babies on the very first Christmas in Chinese! Quality board books and nice colours!
Thank you for your review, PY. We love how sturdy and beautiful this is, too!
