Behind the Book
About the Author
Edna is a physician anesthesiologist and mom, who was motivated to write a bilingual Chinese children’s book, inspired by her son’s friendship.
Although she is not a native speaker of Mandarin, she wanted to read to her children in Mandarin. She found a limited selection of books for this age group so she created them. These stories include English and Mandarin with pin yin to facilitate different reading levels.
