Experts say that one of the hardest things to do in a second language is to express our feelings. Give your child a head start at being a well-adjusted adult by giving him the vocabulary to express his feelings in English AND Chinese.
Although these are the type of books that we at JoJo sometimes think of as "library books"--books that serve primarily to educate rather than entertain-- we were surprised that our own children will often self-select these and other books about emotions for us or Luka to read to them. It just goes to show that kids are interested in their emotions and about learning how to handle them!

Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me": Children ages 2+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.
"Read by myself": Children ages 5+ with a firm foundation in reading Chinese will recognize most of the characters in this book.
Option to pair with Luka:
Consider adding Luka, the reading robot, to your order. Luka reads all 8 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.
