Features we love:
✅ Relatable as it’s all involving local experiences!
✅ Simple vocabulary to aid comprehension
✅ Short sentences for easy reading
✅ Hanyu pinyin aid available, SEPARATELY indicated at the end of the book
✅ Interactive activity at the end of each story to aid recall eg Join the dots, put pictures in right sequence
✅ English-chinese bilingual vocabulary list with hanyu pinyin for key terms
Honestly, I may not necessarily get all the English version of these books,
but we all need some help in the Mandarin department
to help our kids enjoy and appreciate the language more...
so for me, this Chinese series is a must-have!
Love the familiar places featured in these books - we frequently pair them with our outings. Small enough to fit into the kids’ bags too 😄 The Chinese sentences are simple and easy to understand. Budding independent readers can try reading them on their own and refer to Hanyu Pinyin at the back of the book if needed
I could make use of the books to relate to the experiences with my girl! For example, we kept reading the River Safari book because of our recent trip! Good reads!
