Format: Paperback
Very useful introduction to a lot of vocabulary. Ideal for my daughter who got a Chinese girl who we met on the train to help her with the pronounciations. She then could help with the english version. Colourful illustrations and very clear. All scenes very english though, might have been useful to include some Chinese scenes etc too

This is a brilliant book to help learn Mandarin! I have been studying at college, and this book has been helpful in expanding my vocabulary. The pictures make it bright and interesting (which is always useful while studying). The Chinese characters and pinyin are given. :-)

Format: Paperback
The problem with Chinese I feel is that you can't look things up easily in a dictionary, this is very good as a point book for when you want something if you haven't learnt! Even though people will find it funny you are using a childrens book!

The online content thing is a nice added bonus though whereby you can go to a website page reference to get correct pronounciation.

I have been deliberating with buying this book for some time, and finally took the plunge. Great book, i speak (almost) fluent chinese so this is a good book to share with my daugher who i am also encouraging to learn. The book is written in sections which allows learning through topics; home, school, hobbies, sea side, colours, numbers etc. Each page has characters and pinyin, no english but the pictures are very clear. If you only speak a little chinese the usborne online tools provide a listening program. I have a feeling this will become a very usefull book. Downsides; the index is written in chinese to english and not in sections so if your looking for a particular word you may find it difficult. Nonetheless, a great book especially for use with multi-lingual children.

This book is great for children (and adults) wanting to learn the basics of Mandarin Chinese. The fun cartoon pictures make it interesting and fun for children and the fact it has characters as well as pin-yin makes it easy to learn from. As an adult with an already basic level of Chinese it's been a great way for me to flick through and learn new vocab.

for someone just starting to learn, it teaches you the basic words, it helps when starting a more intense course

Ideal to help you learn pinyin and charaters of every day objects and people things. Requires lots of repartition reading

Format: Hardcover
Ce livre est introuvable en France.
Très bel imagier. Une grande illustration, et sur le pourtour, les mots traduits en chinois. Attention, il faut connaître la prononciation du pinyin pour l'utiliser , ou alors se connecter au site internet avec le code contenu dans le livre pour écouter la prononciation, mais c'est un peu "rébarbatif".
