Picture book in Chinese – Good Night, Gorilla

A naughty gorilla steals the keys from the sleeping zoo keeper. It frees all the animals from their cages and follows, together with others, the zoo keeper to his house and spends one night in his house. A very simple book with only a few different words, the vivid pictures tell the story. The zoo keepers says “good night” to the animals he passes. So it is a great book to learn animal names; and of course, the phrase “Good night” as well. By the way, “Good Night” is “晚安 wán ān” in Chinese. After reading the book with your child, don’t forget to show him/her the following animation. S/he would love...

Picture book in Chinese – Happy Birthday, Moon

Today I want to continue with our picture books in Chinese exploration. Today’s book is “Happy Birthday, Moon” (月亮生日快乐) by Frank Asch. When a bear finds out that the moon shares same birthday as his, he bought the moon a hat as a gift. This is a book which will bring you a feeling of warmth and comfort. I like the original book in English a lot. The Chinese translation is also great. I would also recommend the animated version of the book. It is a nice addition to the reading. For young Chinese learners, it could help them establish what they see and what they hear. Yes, read the book, watch the video and listen to the Chinese narration carefully. You will be touched.
