Series: First hundred words
By Heather Amery
A Mandarin Chinese/English word book to help children learn key vocabulary, with one hundred everyday words illustrated in busy scenes and with labelled pictures. Colourful illustrations by Stephen Cartwright provide lots to look at and talk about, and there’s a little yellow duck to find on each double page. Includes an alphabetical Chinese/English word list with easy-to-use pronunciation guide, and readers can also listen to all the words read aloud by a native Chinese speaker at the Usborne Quicklinks website. All words are written using simplified Chinese characters as well as phonetically using the English alphabet.
