My 6-year-old actually asked me to take pictures of the 小狐狸的故事 Chinese bridge books, because she wants everyone to read them!
Good news: these books are available in both simplified and traditional Chinese!
小狐狸的故事 Little Fox Chinese bridge books
Title: 小狐狸的故事 Little Fox Stories
Author: 森山京 Miyako Moriyama
Where to buy:
- Simplified Chinese
- Traditional Chinese with Zhuyin
These endearing, anthropomorphic stories are about a little fox who learns to be brave and connect with his animal friends.
The font is large with a range of a couple sentences to full page of text. Supporting illustrations alternate from colored to black-and-white and are occasionally full pages.
Each book is about 75 pages long.
As for reading level, this is a great series to read after knowing about 800-1000 Chinese characters, such as after completing 四五快读 (Si Wu Kuai Du) or Odonata leveled readers.
My 6-year-old daughter felt that the 小狐狸的故事 Little Fox Stories were easy and she finished all 5 books in a few hours, split between 2 days.
Despite the books being below her reading level, she loved the stories and illustrations and was very motivated to finish each book on her own.
In each book, she forgot about 1-2 Chinese characters which didn’t affect her understanding of the content. She felt that the reading level is slightly easier than Frog and Toad 青蛙和蟾蜍 Chinese bridge books which she read last year.

- 黄色小水桶 The Small Yellow Bucket
- 宝贝飞呀飞 Fly Baby, Fly
