中国神话有意思 (zhōng guó shén huà yǒu yì si) Chinese Myth and Legend includes 7 exquisitely illustrated books introducing children to the fantastic beings and the deep cultural values in ancient Chinese mythology. 

The seven illustrators, with an average age of 25,  adapted ancient Chinese artistic techniques to tell the sories with a modern twist. Each book is an individual art language of its own: 九色鹿 (jiǔ sè lù) A Deer of Nine Colors, is a showcase of a classic style of Chinese ink painting that manifests gold, green and cyan; 神龙尝百草(shén lóng cháng bǎi cǎo) The Magical Dragon and the Herbal Medicines uses mineral pigments made from rock and dirt, a technique that had its heyday in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). 

Texts in 5 of the 7 books are mostly or partially in rhyme, adding a musical flare to the stories.  

Book titles:

 《九色鹿》A Deer of Nine Colors
《鲤鱼跃龙门》Carp Leaping Over the Dragon Gate
《神龙尝百草》The Magical Dragon and the Herbal Medicines
《阳雀造日月》The Yangque Bird Creating The Sun and The Moon
《愚龟移山》The Foolish Old Tortoise Who Moved the Mountains
《酌取月光》Take the Moonlight
《白羽飞衣》 The White Feathered Flying Coat

   

Is my child ready for this set? 

 "Read to me": Children ages 5+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.

 "Read by myself": The mostly rhyming texts make it a fun read for children knowing 1000+ Chinese characters.   

Option to pair with Luka

Consider adding Luka, the reading robot, to your order. Luka reads all 3 books included in this set as well as all books in our "Luka Approved" collection.

Set Luka in front of a book, and it will read aloud any page your child turns to-- creating a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child can't read by herself yet. Looking for a toy that is both cool and educational? Consider Luka!   

In total, Luka reads 30,000 Chinese children's picture books and 6,000 English Children's books. Want to know more? Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.
