Katrina Liu is an American-born Chinese mom and author living in San Francisco, California. Her goal is to add more Asian representation into the world of children's books. She's written a variety of children's books including bilingual children's books in Chinese and English for non-native speakers. When her daughter, Mina, was born, Liu searched for well-illustrated, dual-language children’s books with Pinyin and English, but was surprised at how little she could find. Committed to giving Mina the opportunity to become bilingual, Liu created a series of children's books in Chinese and English. The stories focus on simple everyday dialog with beautiful and engaging illustrations to introduce the Chinese language to young learners in a fun and easy way. Her goal is to continue to provide learning resources for non-native Chinese speakers who wish to foster dual-language skills with their children. Her books are available in both Simplified and Traditional Chinese and include an audio reading in Mandarin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much-needed resource for exploring emotions in Chinese
By hello.laoshi on September 17, 2021
As a teacher, I’ve often seen kids unable to verbally express their emotions. Having childrens’ books that help them recognize and process their feelings is important. Now, as a Mandarin teacher, having a BILINGUAL book about emotions is a game changer!

This book shows all sorts of emotions; aside from the basic “happy”, “sad”, and “angry”, there’s excitement, disappointment, gratefulness, and more. It was a joy to watch a first grader pick the book up and choose to read the Pinyin, her voice changing tones as Mina’s emotions also changed in the story. My educator’s heart felt so proud and grateful.

By the way, the books in this series are bigger than I thought! Here’s a comparison with an 8"x11" (Letter) sheet of paper. What a pleasant surprise!
