book-cover

Travel, Learn and See Your Friends: Adventures in Mandarin Immersion by Edna Ma Written in English and Mandarin (Simplified Chinese & Pin Yin), Travel, Learn and See your friends 走学看朋友 is a story about two first-graders attending a Mandarin Immersion school. Dean and Ethan become fast friends. Dean is ethnically Chinese, and his reasons for learning Mandarin are more cultural. Ethan is an African-American and through his language journey, he learns about himself, his family, and the world. TLSee your Friends is an illustrated story book written in English, Simplified Chinese, and Pin Yin. This bilingual book is targeted at Mandarin Immersion students, but can be read by non-native speakers of Chinese.

MEET THE AUTHOR

Edna is a physician anesthesiologist and mom, who was motivated to write a bilingual Chinese children’s book, inspired by her son’s friendship after he enrolled in a Mandarin immersion school. Although she is not a native speaker of Mandarin, she wanted to read to her children in Mandarin. She found a limited selection of books for this age group. So she created these stories to include English and Mandarin with pin yin, to facilitate different reading levels. Her stories celebrate friendship and cultural diversity. When she’s not in the operating room, she enjoys traveling with her family. You may have seen her on either SURVIVOR or Shark Tank.

RT @JuliaCollard: Agent Jenny Bent says she receives around 50 queries a day, and ends up signing 3-4 clients a year. If I’m doing the math…

Shanghai 上海 here we come! At least in my TLSeeBooks! When you’re the author and art department, this is the result. Coordinating text in 2 languages and illustrations is challenging and fun. Take a peek at my work in progress...
