Luka® can read this books!
Most parents are probably familiar with the Caldecott-medal winning English version of Finding Winnie 寻找维尼 (xún zhǎo wéi ní ). Here we present the same incredible story in Simplified Chinese. Does your child know the true story behind one of the world's most lovable characters? If not, he or she will learn with this book!
What we love about this book:
- Detailed true story which keeps advanced Chinese learners captivated for about 20 minutes of Chinese immersion when read aloud
- Beautiful illustrations done with Chinese ink
- English counterpart readily accessible on YouTube provides opportunity for scaffolding so less familiar learners can be familiar with English version first
- Opportunity to extend learning about history, war, wildlife, and the surprising origins of art
Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me":
Ages 5+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka® or a caregiver.
"Read by myself":
The limited text per page and the prevalence of common language make it a good "bridge book" for readers. The involved plot and detailed illustrations will capture the interest of experienced readers ages 7+.
Option to pair with Luka®:
Consider adding Luka®, the reading robot, to your order. Luka® reads 70,000 books in Mandarin Chinese!
Set Luka® in front of the book, and it will read aloud any page your child turns to-- creating a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child isn't ready to read by themselves. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.
