This was my firstChinesereader book, a book published with the story entirely in 汉字. I found it really rewarding to actually read a story without having to constantly have a dictionary to hand.

I had thought that this may be a little simple for me as I've been working on intermediate lessons for a bit, however there were still a few challenges and many lessons that sank in simply because I was encountering them in a "real" situation rather than a shortexcerpt. The book is quite good at reusing particular constructions as it goes through so that you remember how they are used.

I bought this book from the store.
