The cute and colourful pictures helped to keep Noah interested in the book, while the lift-the-flaps kept him engaged. He would spend some time looking at the page after I’ve finished reading it, and even sat quietly to flip through the entire book on his own after I read it once to him. That’s how I knew he really liked the book! That, and his repeated requests for me to “read it again”, of course.
We learned how to name items and places in both English and Chinese while enjoying the story (written like a poem) with vivid illustrations that were oh-so-very engaging. Ben particularly enjoyed lifting the many little flaps in this 40-page book which is beautifully illustrated. My son too!
A unique feature of My Home is that it is written in Singapore content. In the books, kids {and adults!} will find many items and places that they can associate with in their daily lives in this country. ... A great book to snuggle up to in bed, we usually spend about 30mins to go through all 40 beautifully-illustrated pages.
What I love what the pages showing the different sections in the home and the key items found in that section. It has both Chinese and English which was perfect for my girl who has started to show more interest in the Chinese language of late.
