谁吃了我的毛栗子 Who Ate My Chestnut? (Bilingual)

by Lei Xia

illustrated by Chao Wang

translated by Duncan Poupard


Simplified Chinese Characters and Pinyin with English translation.

Bilingual Mandarin Chinese Storybook (32 Pages). This book reminds me of Scrat, the acorn-obsessed saber-toothed squirrel in the Disney movie The Ice Age, attempting to store his prized acorn for winter. In a similar vein, in this book, a squirrel stumbles upon a prized chestnut. The squirrel finds a place and buries the chestnut to store it for winter. As the weather grows colder, the little squirrel begins to worry about his treasured chestnut and returns to look for it. But alas, it was no longer there! This book introduces simple sentences in Mandarin Chinese with pinyin which will help children at the intermediate level to read by themselves and for reading aloud with beginners new to the language. There is a glossary at the end of the book that reiterates the key words and expressions used in the book.
