Read With Me Mommy


In our family, Daddy is doing the reading, but kids do not mind. As long as they get good stories, captivating animations, everyone should enjoy some quality reading time.

Read With Me Mommy recently invited us to review their Chinese storybooks. We chose Volume 1 of “Shapes” as Daddy thought Boon Yi(6) and Boon Xin(4) would love the six fables. Volume 1 talks about “Friendship and Kindness” (友爱互助).

Maybe Boon Xin loves to say “don’t want to be your friend“, so Daddy wish to let her know friends are important.

We love the big fonts on the picture book, allowing the kids to follow us through the storyline. For parents who are picking up Chinese again (after decades), the Hanyu Pinyin will be helpful. On the last pages, a full English translation is available.

The six titles under Volume (1) are listed here. The three volumes of “Shapes” are ideal for kids between 3 to 7 years old.

Volume 2 and 3 talks about “Use Your Intelligence” and “Look Before You Leap” respectively.

Every story will always end with a moral summary, often encouraging kids to pick up good habits and attributes.

Boon Xin loves The Grumpy Tree (爱发脾气的大树). It tells the story of a unfriendly tree who chase away all his friends. The Tree later realised that friends will always standby us, and help us in our times of need.

“友情是可贵,要好好珍惜” (Friendship is precious, we must treasure it)
