Luka® can read this book!
嗨！小蚂蚁 (hēi!xiǎo mǎ yǐ) Hey, Little Ant
Boy: Anyone knows that ants can't feel. You are so tiny that you don’t look real. I am so big and you’re so small, I don’t think it will hurt at all!
The ant proceeds to explain how his family and community depend on him, and how his life is much like the boy’s life. Should the ant get squished? The book leaves the kid with the raised-up shoe. What do you think the kid should do?
Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me":
Ages 0-3 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 5+.
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.
