And in traditional characters to boot! Hooray!
The publisher, Global Kids Books, is based in Taiwan, where traditional, or “complex” characters are used. Simplified characters (fewer strokes and sometimes bearing no resemblance to the traditional characters) are used in Mainland China and Singapore.
When I learned my Chinese at Princeton, my professors used traditional characters exclusively. My current Chinese school in NYC’s Chinatown uses simplified. I favor traditional characters and still use it for all my assignments. It’s the only way I’ll be able to read the Chinese classics some day.
Anyway, here’s a look at some of the beautiful inside pages! If you’re learning Chinese, and would like to order a copy, go to the Global Kids Books website at www.gkids.com.tw, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
