When you cannot find the right books for your kids to read in Chinese without phonetic help, you can try using Post Its! Post It’s has a “Labeling and Cover Up Tape.” It doesn’t harm the book, perfectly removable and it’s a good way to just cover up the zhuyin so your child can practice reading without phonetic help. It takes a little time putting it on the book before they read it and probably will take a while to remove the tape but it beats trying to go out and finding better material for them to read without phonetic help! It’s actually almost impossible because the books in Taiwan without zhuyin are already post elementary level! Those that are in the elementary category book are all with zhuyin. I’m going to try this out for a while.
