Asher has been crazy over this classic book, titled “We are going on a bear hunt”. We never fail to read it before bed and he gets excited acting out the scenes from the book. So I decided to search for the chinese version and mind you, it was pretty difficult trying to find this title locally. But I eventually found it!
Since Asher has shown some interest in mandarin, I wanted to expose him to the language as frequently as possible. And there’s no better way to do it than through our love for books and reading! Check out the books which we’d ordered, these titles (on the left row) are originally in English. He is familiar with the english version so it helps when I start him on the chinese version.
The set which we received for reviewing is called Dot and Dash Series 1 [点点和多多系列]
It is recommend for ages 0-3 and has interactive pages with interesting pull-ups and texture. This set consists of 5 titles:
- 《点点和多多 玩游戏》Dot and Dash Love to Play
- 《点点和多多 忙碌的交通工具》Dot and Dash On and Go
- 《点点和多多 大变身》 Dot and Dash are Dressing Up
- 《点点和多多 放风筝》Dot and Dash Out and About
- 《点点和多多 在海滩》Dot and Dash At The Beach
It was tough selecting a favorite since each book was captivating in their own way. However, our favorite in the series has to be 点点和多多 – 玩游戏 Dot and Dash Love to Play. Asher enjoys the playground and the adorable illustrations resonates with him. We love the pull-up tabs that make the pages come alive. Enter the world of 点点和多多 and join the characters as you explore the playground together with your child.
Here’s a quick preview of the 5 books. (You must have flash player enabled to view the video)
I hope to groom Asher to be effectively bilingual and felt that books would be useful in introducing this mother tongue to him while I brushed up mine as well.
Did you know that there are less than five local online stores that specializes in chinese children books? After much comparison, I find that www.readwithmemommy.com has the widest range of titles and best pricing. My books will reach me in bubble wrap, all individually secured in clear plastic packaging to ensure their mint condition. I have been a very satisfied customer so far.
