Susan you mafan!
Quite possibly the easiest "novel" available in Mandarin! A chapter book all in Chinese for beginning students, with a quirky and engaging story told using only 212 headwords and 207 unique Chinese characters. Chapter 1 has only 23 headwords and can easily be read by students in their first month of Chinese study. The entire book is about 9000 characters long with illustrations in each chapter.
Want an easy review game, additional practice or a sub plan? There are two Sunzi card games that coordinate directly with this novel, with color-coded "levels" to allow students to practice some or all of the vocabulary in the order it appears in the book: Sunzi: Pingtung and Sunzi: Kaohsiung.
