This lovely multicultural children's book teaches classic fairy tales in both English and Mandarin Chinese.

As Mother Goose has known for centuries, rhyme and rhythm are fun! And what could be a more enjoyable way for children and their parents to learn about different cultures and languages than through familiar rhymes and songs?

In Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes, an innovative collection of favorite rhymes are put in pairs—one from China and the next in English—to show how the things that kids love are the same, no matter where in the world they live. Whether your native language is English or Chinese, you can learn the rhymes along with your children. Just follow the words on the page, or play the CD and sing along!

Nursery rhymes and songs include:
  • Muffin Man
  • Happy Birthday to You
  • I See the Moon
  • As I Was Going Along
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
  • I Love Little Pussy
  • And many more…
