Simplified Chinese Characters and Pinyin with English translation. Bilingual Mandarin Chinese STORY BOOK (24 Pages). This story introduces animals and insects. It shows the typical inhabitants of a vegetable garden. It introduces simple sentences in Mandarin Chinese with pinyin which will help children and beginners new to the language to learn to read.

 

  • On each page the Simplified Chinese Characters and pinyin are shown with the English translation referenced at the end of the book. 
  • Lively story and lovely illustrations
  • The book has 24 pages with a laminated soft cover

Whilst the book mentions the name of the animals and insects in mandarin as shown on the pictures, the fonts are rather small and without any translations. For non-mandarin readers I have included a list of the names animals and insects in mandarin and the English translations mentioned on the relevant pages. You can print the words out and cut and paste them in the story book next to the said animal or insect as I have done for my son or you could just have them alongside as a reference while you read. I hope you find this useful.

* The book mentions 昆虫 which technically means insect. I think the more appropriate word to use here would be 毛毛虫 which means caterpillar.
