These 淘弟有个大世界-家的味道 (táo dì yǒu gè dà shì jiè - jiā dí wèi dào) are essential books for children beginning their Chinese learning journey!
The simple, bold and colorful illustrations enthrall the youngest readers while parents appreciate the short and simple text.
These books are among a relatively small set of books that describe all types of families that young children growing up today will encounter. Todd Parr has been praised in the press and by celebrities such as Elton John for addressing this gap in the genre.

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": The repetitive sentence patterns in these books make them easy for young children to first memorize and then to read. Children who recognize ~500 characters can read these books independently.
Option to pair with Luka:
Consider adding Luka, the reading robot, to your order. Luka reads all but one book included in this set：《 家庭书》The Family Book . Luka is working hard to add the one book to its library. Please stay tuned!
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.
