We are so excited about this new book from Mina Learns Chinese – A bilingual Chinese/English kids book series! A book about sisters! My girls are older but they loved this book because it brought back memories of the various farmers’ markets we’ve visited throughout the years. As a Chinese-American who has lost a lot of the language, I’m excited for us to learn some new vocabulary as we read this sweet story together. The girls in the book interact with different people and use their five senses to take in all the goodness of the farmers’ market. We also love the illustrations on every page. This would make a great gift for your little one…OR for yourself!
“What a wonderful day to go to the farmers’ market! Mina and Leah, 2 adorable sisters, enjoy all the sights, sounds, smells, touch, and tastes of what their local farmers’ market has to offer. Explore all 5 senses with this adorable family and learn some new Chinese vocabulary. Learning chinese has never been this fun. A free audio reading is available in Mandarin.”
We also recommend A Gift for Popo, Mina’s Ups and Downs, and Corgi State of Mind. 🙂
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Katrina Liu is an American-born Chinese mom and author living in San Francisco, California. Her goal is to add more Asian representation into the world of children’s books. She’s written a variety of children’s books including bilingual children’s books in Chinese and English for non-native speakers. When her daughter, Mina, was born, Liu searched for well-illustrated, dual-language children’s books with Pinyin and English, but was surprised at how little she could find. Committed to giving Mina the opportunity to become bilingual, Liu created a series of children’s books in Chinese and English. The stories focus on simple everyday dialog with beautiful and engaging illustrations to introduce the Chinese language to young learners in a fun and easy way. Her goal is to continue to provide learning resources for non-native Chinese speakers who wish to foster dual-language skills with their children. Her books are available in both Simplified and Traditional Chinese and include an audio reading in Mandarin.
