Why we love this book: 

  • Simple counting story with limited text per page makes it easier for little ones to memorize

  • Offers plenty of opportunities to practice counting in Chinese

Book title: 

《首先有一个苹果》First, There Was An Apple

Is my child ready for this set?

"Read by myself": The simple, limited text per page and the prevalence of common, repetitive language from daily life, makes this series a good choice for beginning readers ages 3-7.

Option to pair with Luka

Consider adding Luka, the reading robot, to your order. Luka reads all Chinese books included in this 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 isn't ready to read by herself. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.   

Happy learning!
