My First Animals in Cantonese is unique in its focus on colloquial Cantonese, not formal written Chinese. This book introduces Cantonese language and culture to preschool children, and is ideal for families or caregivers who may not be fully fluent in spoken Cantonese or written Chinese.

This picture book uses conversational questions, phrases and words to take you on a journey to a farm, a zoo, a park and the oceanside. Each word is written in traditional Chinese characters and color-coded to the phonetic pronunciation and English translation.

Note: The official Jyutping pronunciation/phonetic is included. The second, alternate pronunciation is provided in US phonetic English

Reviews for My First Animals in Cantonese (Cantonese + Jyutping / English)

"""Both my daughter and I love this book! As an ""ABC"" Cantonese speaker who can't read/write, the jyutping is exceptionally helpful for me. I find myself learning some animals with her! My daughter pulls this book out almost everyday and she seems to really enjoy that the animals are real pictures vs. illustrations. Please make more books!"" ""Another great book by Ms Yee. My kids enjoy the photographs. I love the structure of the book. It's got traditional Chinese, English, and phonetic sounding of the words, plus color-coded translations. It's a mini-adventure to the farm, zoo, ocean, etc, home. Again, this is a great resource for parents whose Cantonese isn't as proficient as English. They and their kids can learn Cantonese together."" ""This is everything I need it to be. Each word is written in Cantonese, then in pinyin with the tonal numbers and then an extra little pronunciation help. The book is good quality and the pictures are nice.: ) I will be buying the other ones!!"""
