My First Book of Chinese Words


My First Book of Chinese Words introduces young children to basic words and concepts in the Chinese language through colorful rhymes and beautiful imagery. The Chinese words in the book are all common, everyday items, and the rhymes are informative and fun for children.
The goal of My First Book of Chinese Words 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. With the help of this book, children (and adults) will soon join the more than one billion people worldwide who speak Chinese!
