The Sinolingua Reading Tree series is a compilation of graded Chinese storybooks. The first level is for preschoolers and the next three leveles are tailored for kindergarten aged children and elementary school students who are native English speakers as well as Chinese-English bilingual learners in international schools. Each level is composed of 10 storybooks except the Starter level which has 20 titles. The authors of this series are all experienced teachers, they have taken the difficult points students may encounter and the areas where students’ interest may be stimulated into full consideration during the compilation process. In this series, the vocabulary becomes more and more difficult with every level. Each of the stories is engaging and illustrated with vivid images to facilitate readers’ understanding and interest.
The books from levels 1 through 6 cover topics from the Primary Years Program and are compiled based on the Youth Chinese Test vocabulary and those words popular in textbooks adopted by international schools. The books from level 7 - 12 include topics such as school, family, life, travel, Chinese culture and social contact and have been created using words listed in the outlines of international language tests such as IGCSE, IB and AP.
