Chinese New Year in Chinese Characters | 汉字里的中国年
Author: 小象汉字 / Illustrator: 张亚宁
This is a very interesting pop-up book that features and highlights Chinese characters related to the story which is about a family returning to hometown to celebrate Chinese New Year with the grandparents and extended family.
Chinese characters like 归、家、春、福、花 are either highlighted or hidden behind flaps for a game of word search. What word can you find behind the stove, the vase and the luggage?
Written by the 小象汉字 team who develops reading and learning materials to aid Chinese word recognition and reading in young children, your child can learn about the origin of that particular Chinese character from its oracle bone script form (甲骨文) to its present form. To truly appreciate the beauty of the Chinese language, one would need to understand the history and cultural meaning behind the Chinese word. In this book, your child gets a glimpse of that and hopefully it further fuel the passion and interest in the language.
Suitable for 3yo & up with parental guidance.
