My First Book of Things That Go! in Cantonese & English is unique in its focus on spoken Cantonese, not formal written Chinese. This book introduces Cantonese language to preschool children, and is ideal for families or caregivers who may not be fully fluent in spoken Cantonese or written Chinese.
Conversational phrases take you and your toddler on a tour around the city of Vancouver. You'll visit a park, construction zone, lighthouse, mountain, wharf and garden - and see over 40 vehicles along the way.
With phrases such as “We're taking the plane!”, "Let's buy tickets!" to "We're riding the subway home!", this picture book introduces questions, phrases and words to talk your toddler through your visit.
Each word is written in traditional Chinese characters and colour-coded to the Jyutping (and an alternate phonetic pronunciation), and English.
