Mina feels happy when she flies up in the air but disappointed when she is too short for the roller coaster. She finds it difficult to choose from so many foods She feels angry when the goats cause her to drop her ice cream and sad when she first loses a carnival game. Young readers get the message that it’s okay to experience a range of emotions and that all works out for the best in the end.
This book is an excellent choice for toddlers and preschoolers. My only criticism would be that the font for English is rather small and a bit difficult to read as the Chinese characters draw the eye to it.
My 2 year old cannot read yet. However, she is able to recognize some Chinese characters that she has learned (which makes me so happy and proud). I do hope she will be able to read this book in the future, along with all the other Mina books.
The illustrations are really cute. I love bilingual storybooks and wish there were more of them. I love all the Mina books so I highly recommend it to other families, especially those who want their children to be bilingual. I think it's important for children to have the resources (especially books) available to promote learning the language. This book is fun and a great takeaway overall!

It would be even more perfect if the Chinese alphabet was also included in this book

I’m probably not the intended audience for such a book, but felt I at least learned something by looking up what Pinyin is (a version of Chinese symbols written in the Roman alphabet...). As Chinese becomes more of a mainstream option in British schools, this would also be a good book for parents trying to learn written and spoken Chinese for themselves to also introduce the characters to their own kids.
