Most young American readers are already familiar with Ada Twist, Rosie Revere, and Iggy Peck. This fact makes these Chinese books a great opportunity to provide a scaffolded Chinese reading experience.
These adorably illustrated books tell the stories of three inventive and enterprising young tinkerers--who each persevere and pursue their passions despite others' doubts. Full of lessons for children and adults alike, these books are a welcome addition to any home or classroom full of Chinese learners.
