Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes is an innovative collection in which 40 favourite rhymes are put in themed 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!
The lyrics for the Chinese nursery rhymes include their Chinese characters with both the Pinyin transcription and the English translation for each Chinese song. The English nursery rhymes feature the lyrics in English only.
The rhymes and songs highlighted in the book include:
- Muffin Man
- Happy Birthday to You
- I See the Moon
- As I Was Going Along
- Hickory Dickory Dock
- And much more…
Native speakers perform each rhyme in Chinese and English on the included accompanying audio CD and there are notes throughout the book that provide even more ways to experience Chinese culture.
Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes is suitable for all levels of language learning. Beginners will enjoy listening to the sounds of another language and trying to join in. A concise tutorial about the basics of Mandarin Chinese offers parents additional, useful information.
