Join us to celebrate ESEA Heritage Month & Mid-Autumn Festival with joyful activities! Non-native Chinese speaking families are encouraged.

又是一年中秋佳节临近,无论是“但愿人长久,千里共婵娟”,还是“忆对中秋丹桂丛,花在杯中,月在杯中”,都道不尽美好如意的祝愿与思念。而每年的9月都是英国的East and South East Asian Heritage Month(东亚、东南亚遗产月),因此ESEA社群通常都会在9月举行各式活动来相互展示、交流独特的传统文化,庆祝ESEA Heritage Month。

The Mid-Autumn Festival is approaching again. September is East and South East Asian Heritage Month in the UK. The ESEA community usually holds various activities in September to showcase and exchange unique traditional culture with each other and celebrate ESEA Heritage Month.

在这里,我们想为大家首先介绍一位新的双语独立作者Angelina Wong-Jardin,与她在2022年出版的童谣系列儿童读物Nursery Rhymes

We would like to introduce a new bilingual independent author Angelina Wong-Jardin and her nursery rhymes series of children's books Nursery Rhymes published in 2022.

Nursery Rhymes丛书分为四个主题,分别为节日、食物、家庭、动物,选取了大量中国民间的传统童谣、脍炙人口又适合幼儿学习诵读的古诗(比如李白的《静夜思》、李绅的《悯农》),附有拼音与英文翻译,插图活泼可爱、色彩明快,适合多语种家庭共享阅读。并且与常见的双语儿童绘本、语言学习读物不同的是,作者在这套丛书中大胆地添加了录制的歌谣,按下相应的按键,就可以听到轻快的童谣从书页中飘出。

The Nursery Rhymes series is divided into four themes, namely festivals, food, family, and animals. It selects a large number of traditional Chinese folk nursery rhymes and ancient poems that are popular and suitable for children to learn and recite, with pinyin and English translation, lively and cute illustrations and bright colours, suitable for shared reading by multilingual families. And unlike common bilingual children's picture books and language learning books, the author boldly adds recorded songs to this series of books. Press the corresponding button and you can hear the brisk nursery rhymes floating out of the pages.

Nursery Rhymes自从在光华书店上架以来就广受欢迎,吸引了许多双语家长、儿童、甚至是语言学习者驻足聆听。我们也有幸请到作者Angelina Wong-Jardin和另外两位嘉宾Karen Li、Sophie Guo,与光华书店一起在这个9月相约Charing Cross Library,她们将带领小朋友们玩游戏、做手工,为参与家庭读故事、唱童谣;欢迎朋友们携家带口,与我们一起在童言笑语中度过一个不一样的中秋,庆祝ESEA Heritage Month 2023。

Nursery Rhymes has become very popular since it was put on the shelves of Guanghwa Bookshop, attracting many bilingual parents, children, and even language learners. We are also fortunate to have the author Angelina Wong-Jardin and two other guests, Karen Li and Sophie Guo, meet with Guanghwa Bookshop at Charing Cross Library this September. They will lead the children to play games, do crafts, and read stories. Welcome to bring your families and spend a different Mid-Autumn Festival with us among children's laughter to celebrate ESEA Heritage Month 2023.


There will also be a pop-up book stall at this event. Guanghwa Bookstore will bring a variety of Chinese and English bilingual children's books.
