Read-Aloud Collection

We are pleased to share with you our Chinese and English booklists to help guide parents and teachers towards selecting the best books for their children – ones that will pique a child’s interest and nurture a life-long of reading. Both guides are the result of a labour of love by dedicated educational and literacy specialists, parents and librarians who have volunteered their time expertise to compile these valuable resources.

“The Read-Aloud Collection” is a compilation of the best children’s books in English for reading aloud, from birth to teenage years. Reading together is an activity to be enjoyed as soon as children are born, and certainly should not end when they become independent readers.  The collection is divided into three main age groups. In “The First 100 Books”, we have selected quality read-aloud books for babies and toddlers that can be enjoyed over and over. If your child has a particular area of interest, or you have life lessons you wish to impart, then look no further than our thematic guide, “Picture Books to Share”. For older children, we suggest “Chapter Books to Share”, and provide the ISBN for large-format, illustrated, read-aloud versions of these classic and contemporary stories.
