Picture books is a great way to introduce reading to children. There are many excellent English picture books now available in Chinese. Rosie’s Walk is one of them. This is a very simple (yet surprisingly sophisticated, from a humorous point of view) story. A chick named Rosie decides to take a walk one day. She is immediately followed by a fox who is searching for a meal. During the entire pursuit the poor fox receives one mishap after another and they were all initiated by the chick who was totally unaware of the disasters.
The illustration of the book was fabulous. There are few words, but the pictures are so attractive that children always laugh when they read the book. Since there are few words, it is a great to encourage children to describe what they see and guess what’s going to happen next.
A really charming picture book for children.
