Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great learning book and a fun read for the kids! The kids love this book (and us parents too!). I wish there were a lot more of them!! 5 stars for a great children's book with the Chinese characters put together in a clever and entertaining story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and simple This book is cute and simple. Not looking at the age it's recommended for I did buy it for my 8 year old son who is just getting very interested in the Chinese language. The way the author incorporates the letter into the drawings help you to remember the Chinese writing. My son will recognize Chinese words on the shows he watches now. I would love to see a series of this.
