Pre-school 600 Words (Books 1~3) - 学前600字 (上/中/下)
This is a series of 3 books each containing 600 basic Chinese characters for pre-school children, giving them an early head start in their language education. Each character is listed with its relevant Han Yu Pin Yin pronunciation, English translation, and a simple illustration to convey its meaning at a glance. Three commonly used phrases and an example sentence also demonstrate how each character can be used in conversation.
Tapping on the books with the Pen Pal Whizz allows children to hear each character being recited aloud for accurate pronunciation and easier memorisation, enabling readers to quickly pick up basic phrases in Mandarin.
Each book in the series is themed; the first book, for instance, contains common words related to people and daily life.
