Customer Questions (4)


Q: Do parents need to speak Mandarin to use this box with their kids? Thanks!Asked by Renee K., February 2021

Dear Panda answered...February 2021

Hi Renee,
Most of the subscribers understand some level of Mandarin.Some of them, while they do not speak the language, have their children take Mandarin classes. Each month, we provide description and literacy activities of each book in English and Mandarin. We also include customized bookmarks with QR codes that you can scan and listen to the audio version of the books (Not all the book have audio version though, due to copy right reasons.). I hope this helps. Have a great day!


Q: Is this in traditional or simplified Chinese?Asked by Jing L., December 2020

Dear Panda answered...December 2020

simplified Chinese


Q: Does it also have English or just Mandarin and/or Cantonese?Asked by Jasmine L., December 2019

Dear Panda answered...February 2021

Hi Jasmine,
The languages in our bilingual box are Simplified Chinese and English. Most of the Cantonese subscribers we have are able to read in simplified Chinese. Moreover, each month, one of the books comes with an audio book. We include bookmarks for each book, some of the bookmarks will have QR codes that you can scan and listen to the audio version of the book. I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Wow! We bought one of each age group to try them for our kids who have a 5 year age gap. I was so impressed! The books were so beautiful and clearly well prepared. They ran along a common theme and were exquisitely illustrated hard cover books. The baby loves his interactive board book, and even the parents found the lift the flap books magical. The hands on activities kept them busy this afternoon, too! The several dozen beautiful stickers were a big hit and a fun bonus. I was also very happy that some of the books came with a companion audio.
I'm so happy I found Dear Panda. I can't wait to see what's in next month's box!
