Why we started the bilingual story “Maya & Hercules”

For most English-Chinese bilingual children living overseas, their Chinese literacy level i s normally a few years behind their English literacy level . The massive exposure to English pop culture, movies and novels makes Chinese literacy a challenging task for parents raising bilingual children.

For Chinese literacy development , after acquiring 500-800 Chinese characters, children need to keep reading to build up their interest and literacy level . For non native children this is very difficult without pinyin support .

That ‘s why we created Maya and Hercules, an interesting story book that is aimed at different levels of Chinese, Pinyin, English and also includes audio. We partnered with story tellers and children’s illustration artists to bring the stories to life, and we hope your children love the stories and use them to gain mastery of Chinese literacy.
