Most young readers are already familiar with the charming English version of this world classic, but Mandarin learners will love being reintroduced to the set in Simplified Chinese.
Although these books do not rhyme like the English editions, they are well-translated and still follow the adorable antics of young Madeline, 马德琳.
A great addition to any young Mandarin learner's library!
《马德琳和小捣蛋》Madeline and the Bad Hat
《马德琳在伦敦》Madeline in London
Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me": Children age 3+ who are conversational in Chinese will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.
"Read by myself": Although the text is limited, the vocabulary is extensive and not repetitive. Children may be able to read this set independently if they know about 800+ Chinese characters.
Option to pair with Luka:
Consider adding Luka, the reading robot, to your order. Luka reads all but 3 books included in this set.
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. Looking for a toy that is both cool and educational? Consider Luka!
In total, Luka reads 30,000 Chinese children's picture books and 6,000 English children's books. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.
