Finding Beginning Chinese Reading Books

The Asian branch of the Oak­land Pub­lic library has a vast library of Chi­nese books your chil­dren can bor­row to prac­tice read­ing.

They have books with BOPOMOFO (ZHUYIN) and oth­er books with PINYIN.

If you want books with Tra­di­tion­al script (which Han­wen School teach­es) with PINYIN, look for books pub­lished in Hong Kong.

Some books with ZHUYIN that will be suit­able for our old­er kids are the fol­low­ing chil­dren novel/stories.
