How to leverage this book at different ages to spark meaningful conversations:

Encourage your child to wonder with the bright, contrasting colors. Babies love looking at images of human faces, so let them make their first friends via this book.

If your child is 1-2 years old

Read the simple phrases as they learn to talk. These positive phrases will become part of their vocabulary and will help guide them as they grow. Describe the facial expressions; encourage your child to copy, and explore different emotions and expressions.

If your child is 3-5 years old

Instill confidence in your child, and encourage them to be comfortable with their emotions and facial expressions.

Bilingual board book

We have "I am Me". My son has enjoyed grabbing this book and we read it together. He even likes to grab it on his own and look through the pictures! I like that it's a hard cover book and he can flip through the book on his own. He's 10 months.

This is too cute. Thanks Joanna!

Excellent bilingual resource!

This bilingual book is amazing! I love that this book teaches us to embrace our differences, be it physical or ability wise. It’s so hard to find books that are in traditional Chinese, English, and pinyin. I love the fact that this book has all three languages! Also, I love that there are videos on YouTube that reads the book aloud, especially the Cantonese one because the author reads it in both the formal text and the colloquial way. This really helps me to be able to read it to my baby and make it interesting and interactive! Thank you!

Thanks Laura! Glad you and you baby enjoyed reading with us!

Awesome book for my 2 year old

I was looking for a Chinese and English book for my 2 year old and this was perfect! They even have YouTube videos that reads the book to you. That really helped my daughter with learning Chinese. We love reading this together.

Thank you, Mary!

My 2 yo toddler picked up the book on his own

We love this book!! The quality is great, very hard board book that my toddler can’t tear easily. The pictures in the book is real life pictures which we love because baby can relate better. We love reading it to him as the message is beautiful and educational. Highly recommend this book!

Thank you, Jessie!

A great book for your little ones!

This is a great book to start my little one on her bilingual journey! We speak Cantonese at home but it never translated to her books because it was always so difficult to find books with both English and traditional Chinese. Love the themes of positivity behind this book but also use of realistic photos of facial expressions which I personally find more useful than cartoons! Love love this

So glad you find the book helpful! - Serena
