These three 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 three books, divided by the age group, for preschoolers to learn 600 basic Chinese characters: Chinese Characters for Age 2-3, Chinese Characters for Age 3-4 and Chinese Characters for age 4-5. Each book has 56 pages.
By teaching single words, 600 Chinese Characters for Preschoolers provides a good basic introduction of a child’s world in Chinese language.
Each character is shown with examples of how this character is used along with other characters to form words, and along side each character is a short sentence that shows off how the character can be used. This exercise allows for flexible application of Chinese words in practical contexts, and provides deeper comprehension of the text.
Bright, colorful and lively illustrations are printed with their Chinese characters and pinyin, as well as English explanations. The three books are wonderful choices for any parents interested in teaching Chinese to their young children.
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.
