"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 color-coded to the Jyutping and alternetic phonetic pronunciations, and English.

NOTE: This book was previously published as ""Cantonese in the City: Cars, Trucks, Boats & Planes""."

Reviews for My First Book of Things that Go (Cantonese + Jyutping / English)

This was a fun and colorful book to learn Cantonese words and phrases for transportation. The photos of the various modes of transportation in the book are well chosen. I liked how in each photo the traditional Chinese characters were accompanied by the Cantonese phonetic pronunciation along with the English words. The color code was also nice to see and help one match characters and words when learning. I also enjoyed how the book made it like it was trip to Vancouver to see and learn about all these vehicles! 5-star Amazon review
