Guess How Much I Love You

by | Blog, Chinese Printable

What do you say when your child says, “guess how much I love you?”

A lot? Too much? Very much? Or speechless?

The author of Guess How Much I Love You, Sam McBratney did an excellent job in responding to this question with the big nutbrown hare and the little nutbrown hare, it is a cute conversation showing their love towards one another.

Today, I am excited to share with you a new Chinese Literature-based unit (games, worksheets, coloring pages, etc.) for Guess How Much I Love You 猜猜我有多愛你/猜猜我有多爱你.

“This is a book which both parents and children adore and will be a book any adult will happily read over and over again at bedtime!”

– The Guardian

“Gorgeous watercolors illustrate this affectionate story. A perfect picture book”

– The Good Book Guide

The book is a sweet conversation between the big and the little nutbrown hares. They express their love for one another by using analogies and trying to outdo each other.  It’s a very simple, heartwarming story about love.

身为职业妈妈的我,常常牺牲睡眠来自作教材。版主全方位学习的新年教材真让我省下不少宝贵的时间找资料。四岁的女儿对中文学习有点抗拒。我们善用版主提供的迷你故事书和生字卡来增强她对语文的认识。版主的中文单词棋盘游戏更让女儿投入学习, 因为她想赢嘛!版主的教材可让小孩边玩边学, 太棒了。

This is the second 5-Day Challenge that we have done with Fortune Cookie Mom. Both have been very beneficial to our family. I am a homeschool mom of three little kids. We are not Chinese and do not speak any Chinese. With the help of Fortune Cookie Mom, we are slowly learning! The challenges have given me fun activities to do at home with the kids. Each one has reignited my kid's interest in learning. It has been a fun experience for everybody!
