Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;andlt;iandgt;My First Book of Chinese Wordsandlt;/iandgt; introduces young children to basic words and concepts in the Chinese language through colorful rhymes and beautiful imagery.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;It is a book that parents and young children will enjoy reading together. The Chinese words in the book are all common, everyday items and the rhymes are informative and fun for children.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The goal of andlt;iandgt;My First Book of Chinese Wordsandlt;/iandgt; is to familiarize children with the basic sounds and written characters of Chinese; to introduce core concepts of Chinese culture and to illustrate the ways in which Chinese sounds differ from English ones. Teachers and parents will welcome the cultural notes at the back of the book and appreciate how the book is organized using a familiar ABC structure. Each word is presented in Chinese characters (both Simplified and Traditional) as well as Romanized Pinyin for easy pronunciation.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;With the help of this book, we hope more children (and adults) will soon join the more than one billion people worldwide who speak Chinese!

Review:

"Warm, ornate illustrations bring distinctive style to this abecedarian introduction to Chinese words. Each word is presented in both simplified and traditional characters, as well as phonetic pinyin. Familiar references provide context for English speakers: 'G is for gou./ Our dog very dear/ gives a happy ‘wang wang!'/ when friends come near.' The boldly inked images of a Chinese family have the appearance of block prints, and bright jewel tones and strong patterns embellish scenes of the family eating, walking at the seashore, or making hand puppets. Introductory pronunciation notes, brief bits of cultural context on several spreads, and online resources flesh out this useful introduction to the language. Ages 3 — 5."

The everyday words presented in this book include many that have special significance in Chinese culture. Each word is presented in Chinese characters (both Simplified and Traditional) as well as in Romanized form (Pinyin). Cultural and linguistic notes enhance the learning experience. And kids will love the wonderful Chinese family, beautifully illustrated in gentle colors, who will take them from page to page!

"Z" is for zaijian. "Goodbye!" we say—more good times together when we meet another day."
