Comments about Sing 'N Learn Chinese CD & Book:

Even though each have their pros and cons, I liked this set better than the "Teach me Chinese" series.
Pros:
-This set has a singer who is able to sing better in tune.
-The Chinese lyrics match the songs MUCH BETTER, which allows kids to follow the words easily.
-The book isolates certain vocabulary words and has an accompanying picture to reinforce the vocabulary.
-There is both simplified and traditional Chinese along with pinyin and English translations for ALL songs.
-The CD has all the songs repeated using just instrumental so that you can try singing the songs without prompting from the original singer.

Cons:
-Some of the songs could have been recorded slower to accomodate Chinese learners
-Kids voices could have been used in the recording to appeal to younger ones

Not really cons, but something that would have made it better:
-The songs could have been sung in English too, so that kids get a sense of the songs in both languages on one CD. (Teach Me Chinese uses both languages).
-It would have been fun to make up a story to weave all the songs together (Teach Me Chinese does this).

Overall, a worthwhile set to get!
