Overview

FREE AUDIO BOOK INCLUDED!

Mina's First Day of School is part of a bilingual book series by Katrina Liu geared towards non-native Chinese speakers. This book is written in English, Traditional Chinese & Pinyin. Well illustrated Bilingual Chinese English children's books are rare and far between --especially ones with Pinyin. You don't have to be fluent in the language your child is learning in order to create an encouraging and active learning environment. Whether you are bilingual or have little to no knowledge of Chinese, your support will make a tremendous difference to your child's success. I hope this book will help you on that journey!

"Yes" and "No" are not as straightforward in Chinese as they are in English. In Chinese, there is no direct equivalent of "Yes" and "No." Follow along with Mina on her first day at school and meet the delightful characters while learning the many ways of saying "Yes" and "No" in Chinese. In addition, this book will help prepare your little one when it's time to go to pre-school or kindergarten and give him/her the confidence to face the day with excitement as well as experience the common events that happen during school.

Also available in Simplified Chinese! Check out other bilingual books in this series by Katrina Liu!

About the Author

Katrina Liu is an American-Born-Chinese working mom and author living in San Francisco, CA. As an American Born Chinese mom with limited Chinese skills, she began to look for dual language Chinese/English children's books so that she could read with my daughter. She discovered that well-illustrated ones are very difficult to find especially with Pinyin so she decided to write her own inspired by her daughter, Mina. She is passionate about creating Bilingual Chinese/English stories for like-minded parents interested in learning Chinese with their children.

It's a cute book and it has hanzi, pinyin, and English all together. I'm very happy the author publishes both Simplified and Traditional Chinese versions since we use Traditional Chinese in Taiwan. This is great practice for both my daughter and me when it comes to reading/understanding Chinese :)

I have 2 books from this author and both are super adorable. This book is especially awesome because my daughter is starting Mandarin immersion school and this helps prepare her! It's written in both English, Pinyin and Chinese, which is very hard to find. Illustrations are very adorable and keeps my daughter entertained!
