This book has 3 short stories in Chineses, one for each term. Students will learn the characters in each story and each story builds on and uses the characters learned before. Students should have a good grasp of spoken Chinese before they start writing. Writing and reading Chinese characters is always intimidating since there's no real alphabet. Each character is its own "letter" if you think of it that way. Some characters have the same parts (or "radicals") and you can sometimes guess the word's meaning or pronunciation by learning the radicals. This method teaches some radicals and commonly used characters through a method that makes it interesting.
