Chinese for Families is a Chinese language children's publisher. We want to help families learn Chinese at home together.
We produce & publish songs and stories for kids who want to learn Mandarin as a second language. It's never to early or to late to start. We believe in child-centered learning through play -- kids learn best when they are having fun. We create fun CDs, books, games & more to help kids sing and tell stories. All our products undergo classroom testing with multiple age levels.
Chinese for Families offers classes using our unique methods and materials in greater Philadelphia and online.
