These Chinese Pete the Cat 皮特猫 (pí tè māo) books are perfect for children who are beginning to read in Chinese. Repetitive language builds reading confidence and aids in reinforcing common grammatical sentence structures. For readers already familiar with and interested in the Pete the Cat series in English, these Chinese books serves as a logical next step in a scaffolded learning framework.
Unlike many other world classics that lost their essence when translated into Chinese, this Pete the Cat set, co-translated by the renowned children's book author and translator 彭懿 (péng yì), is rich with lively Chinese language especially suitable for young children.

Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me": Children age 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, repetitive language from daily life, makes this series an ideal "leveled reader" for beginning readers ages 7+.
Option to pair with Luka:
Set Luka in front of a book, and it will read aloud any random 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.
