Luka® can read these books!
If there was ever a series that we doubted could possibly be translated into another language without losing its charm, Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie series 小猪小象 (xiǎo zhū xiǎo xiàng) would probably be it! However, Chinese translator 漪然 has done a fabulous job preserving the essence of Mo Willems' signature style in these translated editions 小猪小象 (xiǎo zhū xiǎo xiàng).
Why we love these books:
- Simple dialogues in LARGE speech bubbles
- Repetitive phrases and common expressions
- Carefully scripted text in a conversational style
- Most importantly, kids find them laugh-out-loud funny!
All these features make these books incredibly engaging beginner books for even the youngest Chinese learners. Children feel an incredible sense of accomplishment and build their reading confidence as they complete each 57-page book!

Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me":
Ages 1+ 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 3+.
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.
