What our book recipients are saying
My girls (4 & 6 yrs old) were excited to read ‘I Love Speaking Chinese’ when I first showed them. They are able to read English and majority of the English words in the book on their own. As a Chinese parent, who forgot how to read a lot of Chinese characters, the Chinese characters with Pinyin is so helpful. My girls were curious about the Chinese characters and what the dashes for the Pinyin meant. It help start conversation for my 4yr old especially to read the Chinese and what it means. It’s nice that I can just look at the English for the translation.
Thank you so much for providing this amazing program to Chinese-American families. I am not Chinese American myself (my husband is) and it is important to me that our son embraces every part of his identity. By reading these bilingual books, we are exposing him to his cultural heritage and getting more quality time with his grandparents. Thank you so much.
Yes!! I am so grateful that you are making these bilingual book so accessible!!! I want my child to learn to speak Chinese but I have no success in finding a bilingual book. She loves that she can read to me and I can read to her. Thank you!! I think this is most natural way for her to get accustomed to speaking/hearing Chinese and keep it as a positive experience.
Honestly it is hard to find bilingual books local and when it’s online, it’s usually on the expensive side and as a SAHM with only one income (my husband), I really am limited on how much I can spend a month. So a lot of stuff are hand me downs. So when I found this website, I was sooooo happy because I can finally find books in my language that I can use to teach my son the mother language! Thank you for this awesome program!!!!!!
