Luka® can read this book!
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. Introduce your Chinese learners to these 我的感觉 (wǒ dí gǎn jué) The Way I Feel books.
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 those are our little readers favoriate books. Kids are interested in their emotions and about learning how to handle them!
