Overview of each story
3½-year-olds love rainy days. This simple story illustrates one of such days as a child would see it. It talks about friends, family, activities and what comes after the rain. Your child learns descriptive writing, and one new character.
We should never leave a 3-year-old all alone at home! But Bunny in the story is a big boy and he invited his friends over to play with him. Bunny shared his toys and books with his friends. They also worked together to fix the trouble caused by Cat. Bunny Fun was illustrated by an 11-year-old girl who understands how little children feel.
The Wolf and the Cat
The Chinese language has no lack of rhyming words! They add colours and sounds to our writing. This particular rhyme has exactly seven characters in each verse, making it easy for young children to feel the rhythm. Your child will have a first taste of this popular form of poetry style.
