From the Author:
\"Hi! Im Peipei. I was born and raised in Shanghai, China and immigrated to the States at 13. After becoming a mom, I realized there was a shortage of high-quality bilingual books that could help my newborn son learn Mandarin. So I created Bao Bao Learns Chinese. This book was born out of a clear need to not only support my son, but hopefully children everywhere, in early Mandarin learning. It was a labor of love that took me over a year to create, and I couldn't be more proud of the result! I truly hope you and your little ones will enjoy the book! -- Peipei Zhou\"

For context, we are a Mandarin and Cantonese speaking family living in a primarily English speaking environment, and I am always looking for fun activities so that my kids will understand that Chinese can be used for fun too, not just speaking to adults.
My 3.5 year old likes seeing the Chinese characters, which he has started learning, as well as the English, because he has started learning phonics and mapping the English lyrics he knows to the words on the page. He was especially excited about a Chinese version of Row, Row, Row Your Boat. The baby is equally fascinated and can also operate the book.
I like that we have an alternative to the ipad for Chinese kid songs and that the batteries are the normal kind (AAA) so I don’t need to buy special button cell batteries that are common in music playing books.
The only thing I found confusing was the volume control piece, but I think that refers to the on/off and not loud/quiet. It is indeed very easy to operate, also unlike most music books.
It looks like an incredible amount of work, but I hope the creator will make more books with Chinese songs so the kids can see that Chinese is for fun too!
My only recommendation for improvement is to have the button images that play the songs directly match the song title so that it’s not confusing to have three different song buttons w Pandas featured on them which makes it slightly harder for the child to know which button corresponds to which song.
Looking forward to what will hopefully be future installments of this series with more songs!
Let me tell you why this book is so amazing – it’s not just a book, it’s a: (1) board book; (2) song book with music and singing; (3) book with some of the most popular Chinese nursery rhymes and translated American nursey rhymes that you all know; (4) interactive toy; and (5) a bilingual book in English, Chinese and Pinyin pronunciation – all rolled into one awesome book! What a wonderful concept!
The author/singer is a mommy who created this book for her baby – she has a beautiful soothing voice and the songs brought me back to my childhood as well as when my son was a baby/toddler. Music is so important for babies and children. It has been shown that listening to music helps children develop the ability to decode auditory data and sharpen their auditory memory - abilities which are fundamental to language comprehension. This book will help your kids learn Chinese without it feeling like a lesson.
The songs in this book are written in English with the Chinese and Pinyin pronunciation next to each phrase. Even if you can’t read Chinese, you can still sing along with the author by reading the Pinyin pronunciation. You will understand what you are singing/reading because the English is right there for you. This is also a fun and easier way to learn how to read the Chinese characters, too. As an added bonus, because this book is so sturdy and the song buttons are easy to push, your little ones can read/play with this book by themselves! Need a break for a few minutes? Give them this book!
I really can’t say enough good things about this book!
We don't speak Mandarin, but we had a native Mandarin speaker come to play with her in Mandarin a few times a week when she was 7-9 months old (would have continued, but the Coronavirus lockdown started), and she would sing these songs along with our baby, and found them to be accurately translated - as well as songs she remembered from her own childhood.
We really enjoy the songs in this book, too, and have started being able to sing some of them - our tongues get tied on some songs and words, still, but it's fun to try to sing along!
We also have the French Nursery Rhymes book from Cali's Books (which our baby also loves), but the Bao Bao book is much, much, much better quality in both construction and battery / button life, as well as in the length of the songs (Bao Bao songs are repeated twice, allowing you to actually get the hang of them, while Cali's Books songs are cut short). We've had to change the batteries of the Cali's Books one twice in the same time frame, while the original batteries in the Bao Bao book are still working perfectly.
