BookBobo Loves Dumplings


BoBo, our hungry red panda, loves to eat! BoBo Loves Dumplings is a bilingual counting board book written in Mandarin and English. The book also includes Pinyin, which is the spelling out of Chinese phrases with letters from the English alphabet so that Chinese words can be read out loud, regardless of the reader’s language abilities. Kids will learn how to count from 1 to 10 in English and with Chinese (simplified) characters while celebrating familiar restaurant dishes: from fried rice to lobster noodles to soup dumplings. This is a high quality board book ideal for small hands with durable glossy pages that are easy to wipe. Twelve spreads of full color illustrations help your little ones practice Chinese food vocabulary and the numbers 1 to 10. This book is ideal for babies and children (ages 1-6yo) in their first years of learning Chinese, and will grow with them through preschool as their language continues to develop. May readers enjoy this book as much as BoBo enjoys his meal!
