Chinese Nursery Rhymes

Chinese Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes has nothing to do with Mother Goose, but is a collection of Forty One Traditional Chinese Children Nursery Rhymes ( verses, riddles, and game rhymes) in a bilingual format including ones on lady bugs, kites, and bumps on the head. Also includes the rhymes in Chinese traditional characters. The collection of Chinese Children poems, lullabies, counting rhymes, and songs from the Chinese oral tradition is complemented by illustrations inspired by classic Chinese art (meant for kids, so a bit cartoonish). Reviews by customers of the book have overall been positive, even if some of the Chinese words used are a bit higher level than you would expect in a children's book. Paperback. Children's - Grade 2-3, Age 7-8.

Why the name Chinese Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes, to communicate the idea these 41 nursery rhymes are comparable to the European Mother Goose. So in this book you will not find a translation of Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. Peck is a term of measurement for a 1/4 a bushel or 8 dry quarts that my daughter actually saw in one of her classes.
