Publisher's Description

This lovely multicultural children's book teaches classic fairy tales in both English and Mandarin Chinese.

As Mother Goose has known for centuries, rhyme and rhythm are fun! And what could be a more enjoyable way for children and their parents to learn about different cultures and languages than through familiar rhymes and songs?

In Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes, an innovative collection of favorite rhymes are put in pairs—one from China and the next in English—to show how the things that kids love are the same, no matter where in the world they live. Whether your native language is English or Chinese, you can learn the rhymes along with your children. Just follow the words on the page, or play the CD and sing along!

Nursery rhymes and songs include:
  • Muffin Man
  • Happy Birthday to You
  • I See the Moon
  • As I Was Going Along
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
  • I Love Little Pussy
  • And many more…

Editorial Reviews

"This collection pairs English-language nursery rhymes and songs with their counterparts from China. Wu also includes some lesser-known English-language selections. The book is organized into themes: Outside, Inside, Party, Play, and Night. Hickory Dickory Dock shares a spread with Little Mouse, a rhyme about a mouse that climbed a lamp to eat the oil and can't get down. The Chinese rhymes are presented in simplified characters, pinyin Romanization, and translated into English. Large, brightly colored illustrations feature a multiethnic cast of children and adults. Most spreads have additional information about Chinese culture and ask readers to find items in the art. This book works best for one-on-one reading or as a resource for educators and parents." —School Library Journal
"Singing is a joyful way to learn a language and experience a culture. You can read the book and listen to the CD included for a Chinese New Year filled with traditional children's songs." — Mandarin learning site
"The nursery rhymes are familiar to English speakers which makes this a really appealing book to toddlers, preschoolers and early elementary school students. The authors did a great job on the CD. The sound quality is great, and the singers have appealing voices with nice instrumental accompaniment. This would be perfect because it's visual and audio in one easy package!" — blog
"Kids love nursery rhymes, and this book is a great way to introduce young children to English and Chinese through song." — blog
"Children and parents can easily learn Chinese through rhymes and songs. This book also comes with an audio CD." —Travel Life magazine
"This book pairs English nursery rhymes with similar ones in Chinese (and English) to see how the cultures are similar and different. There are small Do you know boxes throughout the book with interesting facts about the Chinese culture. The book also comes with a CD. It is a fun way to introduce children to the Chinese culture and is definitely worth a look." —Crafty Moms Share blog
"A beautiful book and CD with Chinese-English bilingual classic nursery rhymes performed by a mother (also a Chinese teacher) and daughter duo. Good read for ages 3+." —Miss Panda Chinese
