Building A Chinese Library For The Kids Series:

Here’s my planned posts on the series   Let’s hope I don’t drop it like so many of my previous attempts.  Sorry, we are not quite close to teenage years so I have no resources on books in middle and high school.  Since Thumper isn’t reading in English much yet, I don’t really know English books progress as well.  So my info can be wrong.

  2. Survey of Local Libraries’ Chinese Collection
  3. Survey of Some Famous Taiwanese Publishers and Authors
