If you (adults and children) are interested in learning conversational Mandarin, these books are a good starting point. My 3-year old grandaughter flicks through these books with the help of the downloaded audio (clear pronounciation) and after maybe 10 repeats she knows when I've played the wrong audio! A ding! signals when to read the next page or turn the page. The drawings are lively and the humorous storyline keeps her interested. Each story has a theme (e.g. a picnic, putting on the proper clothes before going out to play in the snow etc) and sentences are repeated but with different objects and situations inserted. A teaching guide is included which is helpful. This series is an excellent starter for non-Mandarin speakers looking at familiarising themselves with this tonal language. Getting the tones correct is crucial if you want to say the right thing in Mandarin! I bought the two sets.
Absolutely love these books. My 3.5 year old doesn’t like Chinese story books but with these he’ll ask for over and over.
Short, simple stories with illustration he can relate to. Simple sentences with repetition makes learning a 2nd language that much easier. Hanyu pinyin and English translation (proper translation, not rubbish literal translation that makes zero sense) for adults who aren’t that fluent or confident speaking/reading Chinese.
