Luka® can read these books!
Eric Carle's vibrant collage illustrations and simple rhythmic language have been captivating parents and children for generations.
We hand-selected this subset of Carle's timeless books because:
- They have been well-translated into Chinese
- Each book teaches a different type of essential vocabulary for the early Chinese learner
- Each book is readable by Luka.
In 从头动到脚 (cóng tóu dòng dào jiǎo ) Head to Toe, children will learn vocabulary for animals, parts of the body and adjectives to describe them.
In 好饿的毛毛虫 (hǎo è de máo máo chóng)The Very Hungry Caterpillar, children will learn the days of the week, several different types of food, and will be introduced to the concept of life cycles.
In 1，2，3 到动物园 (1，2，3 dào dòng wù yuán)1, 2, 3 To the Zoo, children will learn more animal names and will be able to practice their Chinese counting skills.
In 好朋友 (hǎo péng yǒu) Friends, children will learn about land and water forms, verbs to traverse them, and, of course about friendship.
Each of the two hardcover books in this set is large enough to use for a class story-time and the two board books are sturdy enough that you can confidently allow a baby or toddler to browse independently.
If you know of a baby or preschooler just starting their Chinese learning journey, this set would be the perfect gift for them!
