Format: Paperback
This is a simple, interesting and educational book. I enjoy it because it presents a wide variety of interesting information about China (geography, musical instruments, writing, animals, etc.) while organized around teaching the Chinese numbers. Even as an adult with some knowledge of China, I was able to learn a little from the book, as I'm sure children will learn even more. I love learning about a variety of aspects of a culture!

Format: Paperback
The only Chinese words in this book are the 10 numbers. The "Pronunciation Guide" does not use the standard romanization (pinyin) nor does it even hint that Chinese is a multi-toned language. The text is simplistic but uninteresting--had there been a bit of Dr Seuss or Boynton rhyming it might have been more fun.
The pictures are nice.
I'm learning Mandarin and hoping to teach my daughter as she grows up. This book won't help.

Format: Paperback
My four year daughter is adopted from China. She really likes this book. She immediately started copying the characters. It is a simple book that provides a way for her to learn about her birth culture. It is worth adding to your collection.

This title could fit into both the nonfiction as well as the Chinese learning categories. Count Your Way Through China is a good book to enhance a first level Chinese class since counting in Chinese is typically one of the first things they learn. Each 2-page layout is for a number and shows the character and gives the pinyin and then teaches you something about China or Chinese culture that coordinates with the number (e.g., two giant pandas, five musical tones, the festival of nine stars of the plow, ten major dynasties). Some of the info is a bit of stretch to coordinate with the number, but no biggie; it's still a good one.
