Reading to your kid is a simple, yet enjoyable way for parents to take time and bond with your kid. There are abundance of benefits to reading with / to your kids - it helps your child build listening skills, increase attention span and develop their ability to express themselves more confidently and clearly, amongst others. Reading is also a great way to help your child learn a new language.
On language development, being conversant in both English and Chinese is a much sought after attribute in Asia. There are plenty of bookstores that specialise in English books but there aren’t many dedicated to quality Chinese children books. Learning and appreciating Chinese languages has to start young. Speaking and reading regularly to our kids is the best way to get them started, and nothing beats starting from home. Through their regular interaction with Mandarin and reading of the Chinese materials, we hope to cultivate their likings for the language.
Read With Me Mommy is an online bookstore that put together chinese books and materials for kids as young as babies. Each book/material is carefully reviewed and selected by our store. To every product, we have included a short description / review page in English to enable parents to better understand the content of the books they are purchasing. We hope that this would be useful for parents who have lost touch with the Chinese language but yet, would like to find good quality Chinese books for their children.
Please join our mailing list, and "Like us" on our facebook as we run promotions, such as discounts and freebies for our supporters, from time to time.
As we are continually looking to bring in good children books/material to share with fellow parents, do feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are looking at any children book not available locally.
