Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Mina's First Day of School is the 1st story of the Mina Learns Chinese bilingual children's book series. Search for Katrina Liu to see the other books in my series.

From the Inside Flap

Katrina Liu is an American-Born-Chinese mom living in San Francisco, California. A non-native Chinese speaker with limited language skills, she was inspired to give her daughter the opportunity to become bilingual. She searched for well-illustrated dual-language children's books with Pinyin and English, but was surprised at how little she could find. Fluency in a language is most easily gained if a child is exposed to it within the first few years of life. She created this book for like-minded parents interested in fostering the development of dual-language with their children. This is her debut children's book in bilingual format, written in Traditional Chinese, Pinyin and English.

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 Cute bilingual book with fun characters!
By Jojen on January 14, 2021
This is such a cute book, and as my first bilingual book order on Amazon, I was pleasantly surprised. It's so hard to find bilingual books, books in traditional Chinese, and even harder to find good quality ones. My 2 year old niece loves bunnies so she loves the teacher character. She can sit through the entire book and has started repeating parts of the story herself (in Chinese!). She can understand Chinese but doesn't really speak it, so it's great to hear her trying to tell the story!

The book is pretty thin but is good quality paper and it is printed well. Since it's not a board book, we've kept it away from my niece until she requests it, but when we left it out by accident a few times she didn't rip it up because she loves it, lol. The traditional Chinese characters are great because grandma can read it to her and the pinyin is super helpful because everyone else can read that, and the English is great so that everyone understands.

The only issue is that I ordered a second one to give as a gift, and it's in perfect condition with all the right pages, but there were random extra pages about war planes (see photos)! I have initiated an exchange and hopefully the next one that arrives will be what we need it to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, great design, and nothing quite like it available!
By J. C. Bauman on October 25, 2018
Right out of the gate you notice the good-looking cover full of vibrant colors and great layout. But, once you begin to read, you can see the great detail in providing traditional Chinese, pinyin, and English. My daughter is going to begin Chinese immersion school soon, and this looks like a great way for us to help her progress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for preschoolers.
By Mama e on November 1, 2018
My preschool daughter loves this story. She insisted that I read it twice the first night. By the end of the story, she was singing “Mina, Mina!” Sweet storyline that is easy for youngsters to follow. Reminiscent of Ni Hao Kai Lan with the other furry friends. The language/word choices are easy to learn and are useful phrases for everyday. I am not a native Mandarin speaker, so I love that the pin yin is included with the Chinese characters. Hopefully we see more adventures from Mina and her friends. ❤️
