I've never seen anything like this book for learning or using language. Very colorful, fun, easy... and has exactly what you need for the most "crunch time" there is - when you're in those first few days, weeks and months of your adoption. It's certainly not a traditional Chinese travel language book - this is custom-made for talking to your child. There are even two Chinese songs to learn, so you can sing to them and with them in Chinese, which can be very soothing. It'd be great for grandparents, friends, and older siblings to have, too, to help make the transition home even easier. Love it!
