With colorful illustrations related to everyday life in Macau, the readers shall introduce young children to the amazing world of reading, so as to build a strong Chinese literacy foundation for them.
More teaching tools, such as big books for classroom shared reading, flashcards and rhythm books, are also available for kindergarten teachers.
The premiere of the publications took place at Tap Siac Craft Market on November 17-20, 2022 and received positive feedbacks from parents and teachers. Also, the basal readers are available for pre-order for parents from participating schools since November 2022.
