A Chinese child and their family use first words in English and Mandarin to start and go about their day. From "Good morning" to "Good night" learn how to say words and phrases about food, toys, colors, vehicles, and manners! Learning new languages is fun and easy for toddlers and preschoolers. Lively illustrations help preschoolers guess the correct words for each everyday scene. It’s never too early to begin learning a second language. Studies show that from birth to age 8, children have a greater capacity for learning a new language because the language center of their brains is still developing. Perfect tool for helping kids learn Mandarin or English with audio, visual, and repetition.

About the Author

Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children’s books. Our books are designed to spark curiosity in the littlest readers and fan the flames of lifelong learning. We understand children deserve our respect. That's why we always select artwork and stories that encourage caregivers to "read up" to their little ones––exploring interests together, learning together, and giving their young minds room to grow.

We also believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.

To bring these beautiful stories to life, our diverse and talented staff collaborates with authors and illustrators from all backgrounds and nationalities. We have also partnered with multicultural brands and literacy organizations to make sure our books reflect and reach as many little ones as possible.
