Soar with swallows and butterflies, swim with fish and frogs, and stroll alongside elephants and camels. This bilingual children's book introduces kids to the Chinese language by taking a walk through nature—the zoo that anyone can visit.

Lavishly illustrated with Chinese ink paintings from renowned artist Liang Peilong, this immersive adventure is beautiful and fun, while also encouraging learning through the lens of a new culture and language. Children will get to know different animals and the sounds they make in two languages.

Through this story, children can learn Chinese and more about the animal friends that populate the pages of I Have a Zoo.
