"I've just got to get this book out of my "currently reading" queue. My son and I put it down and never really picked it back up. His Mandarin class is over and we moved on to other things, even though I would love for him to learn Mandarin, this book will not help me do it. A native Mandarin speaker might give this book a much higher rating, but as it has no English in the text or on the CD, it wasn't so great for me. I do like the illustrations and the CD, and it does seem like there is a lot of information and that this book is very useful in skilled hands. However, I'm a beginner myself and this is not the book for me. I hope we get back into Mandarin so I can actually use this book someday." said.

"I bought a Textbook 1 but it comes a textbook 1, I don't even want to send it back." said.

"Pros:
1. Lots of nice simple phrases and words that are appropriate for beginners.
2. Lots of pictures, easy for someone who's a native language speaker or has a teacher to follow along with
3. Works well with the companion workbook

Cons:
1. The activities range from like something a three-year-old might do (drawing a line from a number to a picture) to something more appropriate for a much older age-group (some of the words that need to be traced for example)

This is actually one of the better systems I've found for beginning Mandarin for kids... however, it's still not as good as similar second-language material I've found for other languages.

"See above review, disappointing with many gaps that are not explained in the text." said.

"great set for adults or kids. Does not assume anything just teaches from a foundation." said.

"This textbook is fantastic, especially when paired with the workbook. It teaches your child how to write many different mandarin characters. Would recommend to anyone looking to enhance their child's foreign language experience." said.
