Practice reading Chinese with fun stories and nursery rhymes. Click on a title to access the story.  If you can’t read a word, just move your mouse over the character and English definition and pinyin will show up.  If a story says “picture book”, that means it has multiple pictures that should be read along with the text for you to get the best experience.  Every story on this page is for educational purposes.   Support the authors and illustrators by purchasing the book where it’s available. I am adding new stories and making new audio all the time.  Check back often!
