Product Description:

"This collection pairs English-language nursery rhymes and songs with their counterparts from China. Wu also includes some lesser-known English-language selections. The book is organised into themes: Outside, Inside, Party, Play, and Night. Hickory Dickory Dock shares a spread with Little Mouse, a rhyme about a mouse that climbed a lamp to eat the oil and can't get down. The Chinese rhymes are presented in simplified characters, pinyin Romanization, and translated into English. Large, brightly coloured illustrations feature a multiethnic cast of children and adults. Most spreads have additional information about Chinese culture and ask readers to find items in the art. This book works best for one-on-one reading or as a resource for educators and parents." —School Library Journal

"Singing is a joyful way to learn a language and experience a culture. You can read the book and listen to the CD included for a Chinese New Year filled with traditional children's songs." —MissPandaChinese.com

"The nursery rhymes are familiar to English speakers which makes this a really appealing book to toddlers, preschoolers and early elementary school students. The authors did a great job on the CD. The sound quality is great, and the singers have appealing voices with nice instrumental accompaniment. This would be perfect because it's visual and audio in one easy package!" —MissPandaChinese.com

"Kids love nursery rhymes, and this book is a great way to introduce young children to English and Chinese through song." —MissPandaChinese.com

"Children and parents can easily learn Chinese through rhymes and songs. This book also comes with an audio CD." —Travel Life magazine
