The Swimming Race - My First Chinese Storybook - Animals adapted by Laurette Zhang. The mouse won the swimming race, but lost all his friends. Why? Animal stories have been added to the My First Chinese Storybook series because animals have always been loved by children. The author, an experienced teacher, selected these stories from Chinese fables and idioms and adapted them for young learners of Chinese as a fresh way of learning through reading. The appendices at the end of each book pinpoint key words and sentences, and include questions based on the stories for parents and teachers to use in engaging children in interactive activities.
