Besides keeping our childhood toys well, my mother also kept our books beautifully. Alas, several years ago, there was some leakage through our walls/windows, and a whole lot of our books were damaged and had to be thrown away.
This Peter and Jane set however, survived because it was at my aunt's place. Yup, a set of books that went through 5 kids. They're not in the best of shape anymore (I venture to guess that it is because 2 of the kids were boys *looks crossly at my cousins*), but thankfully still very readable.
Bubbles really likes them! I was surprised because they're so mangly and old-fashioned compared to the spanking new books she usually gets to read. Even those borrowed from the library are in much better shape! She often asks to be read Jane and Peter (I don't know why we say it in that order in our family), and reminds me that they are at Por Por's house.
Would anyone know if there's a similar type of reading series in Chinese? I would love to get a set for the Bubs!
