Little Picnic Magazine is a magazine intended for early readers learning to read Chinese. Through stories, games, and activities, little readers experience and discover different cultures of the world.
This issue will take little readers from a high speed shinkansen ride to a relaxing onsen surrounded by Japanese macaque, from making a fruit sandwich to folding an origami balloon, from designing their own bento box to browsing the streets of Kyoto. All while practicing reading in Chinese.
The creators filled 40 pages with fun activities and reading, and can’t wait for you to join us on a tour of Japan.

Who is Little Picnic Magazine for?
Little Picnic Magazine is aimed at budding Chinese readers. The text will be written entirely in traditional Chinese and will be designed for families learning to read across the Chinese diaspora. There are limited resources accessible to this audience (who are not looking for bilingual text) and we're excited to be able to create one to add to the offering.
Since the audience's age group is younger and their literacy skills will be basic, everything will be short. The hope is that little readers can still enjoy a variety of educational content while building confidence and independence in Chinese reading.
What can I expect in each issue?
Each issue will have a limited run with no reprints and Little Picnic Magazine will be focused on adding more issues if it is well received. The current plan is to release two issues per year to start, with the premiere issue releasing in November 2023.
The first issue includes:
- Featured story
- Comic strip
- Word search
- Craft instructions
- Step-by-step food recipe
- Coloring pages
- ...and more!
