My first children's book. It is based on a conversation that my son who was 4 years old at the time had with a good friend of mine when we were having lunch. At the time he found a stick, it was a plastic stick that became a magic stick.
I wrote down the ideas and turned it into a book. I am trying to bring my children up as bilingual. I didn't learn Mandarin until I was an adult and found it difficult when I was learning to find suitable books that had English, Simplified Chinese, and Pinyin. Pinyin is the Romanised pronunciations of the Chinese characters.
In this book, my daughter who was 10 at the time, translated it and we got it checked by a native speaker of Chinese. My children's Mandarin teacher (former Chinese University lecturer) teacher also checked and corrected the translation.
I hope you enjoy the story and the art. Soft-covered book is A5, postage included within New Zealand
The book and audio files of English, Mandarin and Cantonese are available on YouTube. Please like and subscribe to my channel.
