10 Best Interactive Chinese Ebooks for Lower Elementary Students (Ages 6-7)

Enhance your child's Chinese listening comprehension and encourage a love of Chinese books with the following 10 Best Interactive Chinese Ebooks for Kids Ages 6-7. 

In a 2-year-long search for the best books for kids learning Chinese as a second language, our team of immersion school educators, linguistic experts, parents and child testers read and reviewed over 4000 popular children’s picture books in print and digital format to find the best Chinese children's books for each age group.

If interested, you can read more about our book selection and age-based book leveling criteria here.   

Since we know that many families do not have access to print copies of Chinese children's books at home, we decided to prioritize sharing our picks for the 40 best interactive ebooks for kids learning Chinese first.  

We've divided our picks into four age groups and will present the top 10 books for each age. Below you will find the 10 Best Chinese Interactive ebooks for children ages 6-7. To see our list for kids ages 2-5, click here

Some parents may be skeptical about the educational quality of ebooks, but here’s why ebooks and particularly animated ebooks are great—especially for kids who are reading in their community’s minority language. 

  1. It can be difficult and expensive to obtain print copies of Chinese books outside of China.
  2. Ebooks can vastly increase children’s reading exposure. Ebooks are accessible anywhere.
  3. Ebooks enable children to "read up" in a foreign language, even if they or their caregiver cannot read.
  4. Children love interactive ebooks.

    Ebook's most attractive feature may be their interactive, animated illustrations. These gently moving animations may resemble the "live photos" on your iPhone or the living photographs in the wizard newspapers of the Harry Potter movies. Animated illustrations can provide educational and developmental advantages over traditional static ebooks by allowing children to independently explore and interact with a book, somewhat similar to a guided reading experience with an adult.

    We hope that you and your 6 and 7 year old learners enjoy the books below!

    • These book lists are so helpful, thank you! I don’t speak (much less read) Chinese but my child has enjoyed several of these and I appreciate having some options to suggest when they’re looking for something new.
