"My First Everyday Words in Cantonese & English introduces Cantonese language and culture to preschool children. This book is unique in its focus on colloquial Cantonese, not formal written Chinese. Chinese characters are color-coded to the pronunciation and English translation. This book is ideal for when families or caregivers are not fully fluent in spoken Cantonese or written Chinese.

Starting with ""Good Morning!"", this picture book contains conversational questions, phrases and words to take you through a day in the life of a toddler. Each word is written in traditional Chinese characters, Jyutping and simplified phonetic English. A special section for dim sum, a Cantonese cuisine and tradition of small, bite-sized plates, is also included."

Reviews for My First Everyday Words in Cantonese & English (Cantonese + Jyutping / English)

It is SUPER RARE to find a book that had english, Cantonese, and phonetic pronunciation and chinese characters for every word. The sentence format that is used is very effective for teaching. For those who are not advanced in cantonese this is the best book I have ever seen. Lastly it is very easy to teach cantonese to kids using this book even if you are not super fluent due to the multiple ways the words are presented. It even color codes the characters to the prounciation and english translation!!! (Amazon shopper) I put this in my classroom library. My students were fighting over who will get to borrow the book first. I definitely would recommend this book for young children or even adults who want to learn some basic Cantonese words and phrases! (Fanny Yu, second-grade teacher)
