These two Easy-Read bilingual audiobooks are specially made to be compatible with Easy-Read Pen, a pen-shaped book reader onto which audio from specific books can be downloaded.
When Easy-Read Pen scans across book pages, either images or texts, the corresponding Chinese words, phrases, paragraphs, or dialogues are read out loudly in clear mandarin, a new technique of Point and Read. Please see E-reading pen: an interactive tool to learn Chinese for more details.
This package includes two nursery rhymes that are playful and easy to remember: Chinese Nursery Rhymes and English Nursery Rhymes. These two books feature an excellent selection of short and sweet Chinese/English nursery rhymes perfect for babies and young children.
Chinese Nursery Rhymes features simple yet charming nursery rhymes in Chinese with cute colorful picture illustrations, making it easy for children to understand and learn. Each page also comes with some quick science facts about each featured subject. The book comes with pin-yin.
English Nursery Rhymes features an excellent selection of popular nursery rhymes in English, with colorful cartoon illustrations and simple interpretations on the meanings of each rhyme. These popular nursery rhymes help children build phonological awareness and sensitivity—the ability to hear the breakdown of sounds within words and to diagnose rhythms and patterns of languages.
You can upload the audio files of these books into your Easy-Read Pen. These audio files are available from a CD that comes with the books. Or you can download them from here.
