Information for teachers

Written in simple Chinese, the book is suitable for learners in the first year, and focuses on repetition of the most frequent words and characters in the language. The entire story contains just 114 unique words (with “he” and “his” considered to be two words, for example) and runs over 700 words in length. Each page is illustrated, and the text is in full color, with spaces between words, to assist emergent readers of Chinese. A full glossary is included at the end of the story to ensure that the text is comprehensible to all readers.
