100 Best Chinese Children's Books by Age - 2022

After a 3-year-long search for the best books for kids learning Chinese as a second language, JoJo Learning is excited to annouce its Best 100 Chinese Children's Books 2022 list! 

JoJo’s team of immersion school educators, linguistic experts, parents and child testers read and reviewed over 4000 popular children’s picture books to find the best Chinese children's books for each age group, 0-2 years, 3-6 years, and 7+years.  

We believe that children's time is precious and should not be wasted on mediocre books in any language but especially not in a language which they already have limited exposure to. That's why we did the homework so you can be assured that your child is reading the absolute best books when it comes to Chinese. Some of the 100 "books" in this list are book sets that include multiple books, making the total JoJo 2022 list 663 individual books!

In the United States, children have thrived by participating in the "1000 Books Before Kindergarten" program that encourages all families and caregivers to read at least 1000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten. The JoJo Best 100 Chinese Children's Book list strives to help children learning Chinese move a step closer Chinese literacy. 

Book selection criteria

  1. Fun. Kids learn best from books that they truly enjoy.
  2. Global. Learning a second language is like gaining a second worldview. Diverse literature cultivates global citizens.
  3. Great Literature. Childhood is fleeting. Kids should be exposed to high-quality award-worthy literature from as young an age as possible. 

In order to break down our favorite books and assign them to the appropriate age group, we used the following leveling criteria.

 Book leveling criteria

  1. Cognitive & developmental readiness
  2. Book and page design
  3. Language use and complexity

Note that our age-based book leveling criteria prioritizes the child's cognitive and developmental readiness first, book and page design second, and language complexity third. This is in contrast to some existing book leveling standards currently used for both English and Chinese children’s books. Two of the major issues that critics have found with some existing leveling systems are: 

  1. Quantitative algorithms for book difficulty levels can miscalculate language complexity: For example, length of words is a standard criteria for many leveling systems, but longer words and sentences are not inherently harder, especially for Chinese, when short idioms and choppy sentences can make comprehension more difficult.  
  2. Children are constrained to "reading down" if assigned to a pure language-difficulty based reading level. Research suggests that children’s listening comprehension outpaces reading comprehension until the middle school years. It is especially important for young children to be read to as they gradually shift to independent reading. With the assistance of parents, teachers, E-books and AI book reading companions, being read aloud to in a foreign language is not only possible, but also really fun for young children! Do not limit your children’s potential or underestimate their learning super power. Children should read, read, read, and read topics that attract their inner curiosity.  

We at JoJo Learning believe that children's intrinsic love of reading is powerful. We consider quantitative data, yet heavily rely on qualitative, experience and observation-driven criteria, with children’s interests as the primary focus. We consider language complexity, yet encourage developmentally stimulating "reading up" and being read to.
