Start your baby on getting the bilingual advantage today.
These Learning-Chinese Books are fun for baby and can provide countless hours of bonding time between parent and child.
These Chinese books have big text and illustrations so baby can see it easier. Some of these are board books, so that baby can enjoy the book longer ( as well as taste it, wave around, toss from different heights).
The most enjoyment baby will gain from these books is when you hold baby near and you read the story out loud.
If you would like to start reading to baby, but don't know where to start, how about trying out these customer favorites:
Here are the language milestones (understanding and expressing) that babies and toddlers learn at this age. Reading Chinese baby books out loud to your child can help in each milestone. Sounds, syllables and words heard frequently from caregivers make it natural for babies to learn a language.
Birth to 5 months. SOUNDS Baby can tune in to directions. Can follow your gaze at each side, but cannot follow what you're looking at above baby's head. Can speak vowels, gooing, some poorly timed babbles. Can smile, sometimes in response to external events.
6 months - 9 months. SYLLABLES Baby can turn head if name is said. Can start learning "no" Can look where you point, not just pointing finger Baby starts saying syllables, may say sounds with forceful trilling
1 year old. BABBLE and WORDS, ROUTINES. Baby starts recognizing words of interesting things. Says easy sounds like "ba" or "da", sometimes "sh" and "f". "R" will be said later. Can respond to, but not lead, predictive action like patty cake, bye bye, etc. Some kids start speaking whole words.
1 year 4 months to 1 year 6 months. WORDS.
Number of words understood by boys : 50-350 Number of words understood by girls : 60 - 400
On average, first words are said between 10-18 months.
Number of words boys can use to express at this age: 13-420 Number of words girls can use to express at this age: 17-475
Note: Do not worry if child does not speak or sign words after 18 months. It is more a concern if child does not understand any words at that age.
24 months. SENTENCES. Child can understand most of what is said, especially with a lot of support. Major milestone is 2-word combinations by around age 18 months. Almost all children have word combinations by 26 months (2 years and 2 months)
If your child can access and learn Chinese at this age, there is a more natural flow of learning Chinese as baby's cognitive aspects develop as well.
It has been found that babies who are frequently spoken to by parents learn language faster. For parents who want their kids to learn Chinese easily, do communicate with your baby more with our 0-2 years old Chinese books, songs and videos.
