Luka® can read these books!
Now part of an amazing new bundle featuring Luka®.
If you have read the English version of the 青蛙和蟾蜍 (qīng wā hé chán chú) Frog and Toad stories before, you know the magic of this timeless classic: the short tales with simple, easy-to-follow plots engage both advanced and emerging readers, providing a perfect "bridge book" before introducing children to chapter books.
The Chinese version of Frog and Toad, with its masterful translation, strikes a chord with budding Chinese readers as well. Each book has 5 stories about Frog and Toad. The two gentle friends teach children to treasure friends and value selfless actions. As the short, action packed sentences flow, young readers readily relate to the characters and are eager to read more.
This series is highly recommended by educators and parents. Read this in-depth Frog and Toad book review by Betty Choi here.
