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 – It’s Mine

It is a book from Leo Lionni. A lovely book featuring 3 frogs who claim things theirs. According to Trev Jones, School Library Journal , “Although there’s not as much depth as in Frederick (1966) or as much whimsy as in Alexander. . . (1969, both Pantheon), this is still a fine choice for spring story hours. Three childlike frogs spend their days bickering and baiting each other: it’s mine, claims one about the water. Another purports ownership of the earthor a wormor a butterflyor whatever. It isn’t until disaster almost stikes and they are saved by a toad that Milton, Rupert and Lydia realize that private ownership isn’t that important. Whether grumbling for the sake of being difficult or dancing with delight, Lionni’s frogs spring to life. Collages of marbled-textured paper, all in cool, crisp, spring-like colors against a stark white background, are a perfect match for this story of selfishness on the pond, carried out in beautifully simple line and language.” A good picture book for young readers. Below you can find the animated version in...

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.
