阿波林的小世界 book review
阿波林 is a toddler who has a doll called DouDou. DouDou is 阿波林’s, baby, and she takes care of her like a little mama. 阿波林 puts DouDou to bed and tells her bedtime stories, builds a snowman together with her, brushes her teeth, and many other day-to-day childhood adventures.
The 阿波林 Chinese books use simple, everyday vocabulary and grammar. Each page has only 1 line of text, and the Chinese characters are easy to read against the white background.
This is an excellent set of books for kids who are starting to learn Chinese, because the scenarios are realistic and relevant to daily life.
The books may be too “young” for elementary school kids, but it could be helpful for those who are looking for easy reading practice.
Although my 5-year-old daughter is reading Chinese bridge books, she still loves the 阿波林的小世界 book due to the cuteness!
Since the books are so thin, you may want to avoid them around babies who have not yet learned to respect books (no throwing, bending, ripping). However, I am glad that the books don’t take up much space, because kids will outgrow these eventually!
