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 Beautiful, kid-friendly book about emotions. Sweet family story. Great for Chinese learning.
By K. Ung on August 6, 2020
I love Katrina Liu's book. They have such a sweet storyline that all kids can relate to. I love that the book has pinyin which enables my daughter to read and pronounce the characters. This book talks about emotions which is such an important topic. The beautiful illustrations and dialogues help me in explaining the different emotions to my children. I appreciate that Katrina makes the books available in both Traditional and Simplified form. The characters and writings are easy to read. Such a wonderful Chinese-learning book. My daughter loves it a lot and she can't wait to collect more Mina books.
