I bought this set on accident while in Taiwan. I’m a sucker for classics and especially when we’ve read through the English ones. In terms of the Chinese, it’s actually a long book to read for a child on their own and I really would classify this as a bridge book because it’s got the longer paragraphs, easy to read sentences and really could be done independently if you knew zhuyin. The stories are … pretty self explanatory since we all know them in English. They are quite well translated and the language is kept simple for children to read on their own. For practice reading, I give it a go! For smaller children it’s definitely a great bedtime book for the parent to read to the child and I do believe starting at three years old, they’ll start to understand what is happening. Although it’s about a naughty monkey, it’s a classic that’s loved over the generations. It’s great to have in the collection. I also like how it’s soft cover so it doesn’t take up much space! Hurrah!!!
