Every since we discovered Stream of Praise 讚美之泉, my family has been listening to their Chinese Christian songs every day! Over a year ago, I bought two Stream of Praise music board books for my children. They loved being able to listen to their favorite songs independently through these push-and-play books!
Recently, 讚美之泉 Stream of Praise gifted us the 3rd new music board book, so I wanted to update this review with our current opinion!

Teaching our children about Jesus through music
Music is one of the best gifts from God, and I feel like it’s one of the most naturally motivating ways to learn.
When my 老大 (lǎodà / oldest child) was 2 years old, she became open to learning Mandarin through Chinese children’s songs. Initially, we listened to popular Chinese music rhymes, and learning those lyrics helped us learn common Chinese vocabulary.
Although we mainly study the bible in English, our family’s dominant language, gradually, we have been learning about prayer and bible verses in Chinese, thanks to Stream of Praise 讚美之泉!
Frequently, 老大 loves to do copywork (writing practice) involving 讚美之泉 Stream of Praise lyrics in Chinese!
Stream of Praise 讚美之泉 Children Music Board Book Review
- Hardcover board books
- On/off switch
- Volume up/down switches
- 6 short songs per book
- Music in Mandarin Chinese
- Lyrics in traditional Chinese plus English under the Chinese characters in small font
- One bible verse per song
- Dry-erase coloring pages and prayer suggestions at the end of the book
What we love
- Easy for both of my children to play independently
- Pleasant music
- No flashing lights like many other electronic toy products
- The adjustable volume makes this mom happy!
- Chinese Christian songs!!! Hallelujah!
As a non-fluent speaker, I can understand most of what they are singing/saying, and my daughter has learned the lyrics of most songs!
The lyrics are mostly clear and the melody is generally in tune!
Areas for improvement
- I wish they included photos from the music performance videos rather than cartoon illustrations
- The font is difficult to read. I wish the font was standard black and not cartoon-like.
- My kids don’t use the coloring pages, and I think they aren’t necessary. I would worry about the marker getting on the wrong parts of the book, and the point of the book is to enjoy music anyway.
