mandy and pandy play sports (mandy and pandy series)

Summary:
Mandy and her panda friend play lots of different sports together: basketball, gymnastics, and football. The text is simple and written in English and Chinese characters (with the English phonetics for pronunciation).
Educational Themes:
This book series is designed to introduce children to Chinese and teach them the language. That said, because it is a bilingual book, you can read just the English and talk about the subject (sports). A CD offers the opportunity to introduce children to the sound of the language.
Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
4 to 8
Recommended Age To Read Together:
0 to 4
Age of child:
Read with 2-year-old and 4-year-old boys.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. Toddlers and preschoolers who like sports will find this a nice book to look at.
Little Kid Reaction
Both of my sons enjoyed this book because they love sports. We shared it a couple of times and they also picked up the books to flip through the pages and talk about the sports by themselves.
Big Kid Reaction
This was a so-so book. We didn't attempt the Chinese words, but I liked that my boys were enthusiastic about reading it. There isn't much of a "story" per se.
Pros:

This is a book about sports that is thematically appropriate for toddlers interested in sports.

Cons:

Although the illustrations are cute, they are not superb.
