What I am
Some call me ‘Dr Seuss in Chinese!’ I’m a series of picture books designed to help kids gain exposure to Mandarin Chinese. My stories rhyme, making the book catchy, fun, and easy for kids to pick up. My stories also promote important topics such as healthy eating, friendship, hygiene, independence and creativity.
How I work
Other than reading it like a normal picture book, my text is supported by PinYin (inline) and English (on the back) to give non-native Chinese parents a little help. I can also be rapped! Check out my demo rap recordings on my website, and challenge your little ones to rap out the book. For those who can’t wait to receive the books, I can also be purchased as an instantly downloadable PDF!
My creators (Alice & Lily Cheng) are new moms brought up in a bilingual English / Chinese environment. They hope to do the same for their two little ones! Whilst they managed to find great timeless classics like Goodnight Moon or Dr Seuss to read to their kids in English, they had trouble finding children’s books in Chinese that were equally interesting and catchy … not to mention those awkward moments when they got stumped by Chinese characters they had forgotten how to pronounce! So they wrote the books in hopes that their little ones would find learning Chinese to be fun and engaging!
