Stream of Praise 讚美之泉 has a wealth of original Chinese Christian songs for adults and children. A few months ago, I bought the Stream of Praise music board books for my toddlers. They love the music and being able to handle the board books independently. 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!

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 verse per song
- Dry-erase coloring pages and prayer suggestions at the end of the book
- Easy for both of my children to play independently.
- Pleasant music – could not more clear however.
- No flashing lights like many other electronic toy products.
- I don’t care for the cartoon illustrations.
- The font is difficult to read. I wish the font was standard black and not cartoon-like; this makes it difficult for kids to learn how to read the lyrics.
- I don’t see the point in having a coloring page at the end of the book. 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.
