[Monthly Chinese Fun Series + Review + Giveaway] Classic Fairy Tales in Chinese

A set of Classic Fairy Tales series to share for my monthly Chinese Fun Series.

I bought a thick " 5 minutes Fairy Tales" for Xav but not any books on fairy tales in Chinese, until Penpal Whizz came along. I have shared before the differences between Penpal Whizz and Leapfrog if you happen to be reading this post and is caught in between on which set to get for your child, I hope this list helps you in your decision making. =)

If you are looking for Classic Fairy Tales in Chinese version, JLB has a set of audio books series,

in a bundle of 10.

These fairy tales teaches children about love, kindness, bravery, moral behaviours etc.

The stories are being brought alive when you tap on the images using Penpal Whizz, you get to hear dialogues and sound effects. And if your child would like to listen to and try reading in Mandarin, there is a "Read after me" function found on the first page of each book.

Fairy Tale Bundle Pack includes 

Anti-Clockwise from top left: Pinocchio, Lil' Red Riding hood, The frog Prince, Fishermen And Fish

Anti-Clockwise from top left: White Snake, Ugly Duckling, Hansel and Gretel, Thumbelina
Left to right: Cinderella & Jack and the beanstalk.

What I like about this set of books is, the text does not contains Han Yu Pin Yin (HYPY) on top of the characters and it's compatible with Penpal Whizz.  I realised children will have the tendency to read the HYPY instead of making an effort to recognise the characters. What I would do at times if am busy, Xav will listen to Penpal Whizz first but if I'm with him,  I will read along with him and track the prints with my finger as we read.

On the other hand, the illustrations are lovely but I would prefer the text to be on a plain white background. I find it a little hard to read prints printed on the illustrations with dark colours.

Overall, this series of Classic Fairy Tales in Chinese is a keeper if you have the intention to expose Chinese language to your pre-schooler via this fairy tales series.

I have also reviewed the following which are compatible with Penpal Whizz :
I.Love.Reading Magazines
Jo's Early Readers
Emily Lim's Toy Tales Award Winning Series
