  • DVD: Animated video featuring Chinese-American sister and brother duo, Ling and Kai, and their family. The series revolves around the kids’ special relationship with Guang, the Chinese dragon.

Each volume repeats the vocabulary learned in the previous one and adds approximately 50-60 new Chinese words, phrases and expressions.

Each DVD also includes a live-action feature that focuses on some element of Chinese culture, such as making dumplings or lanterns.

  • Book with Audio CD: The tales in the books closely mirror that of the animated videos. The read-along CD includes a lively narration of the story and songs from the DVD. Mandarin Chinese is presented along with English, in both a Romanized form of Chinese called pinyin.

  • Flashcards/Playing Cards: The flashcards/playing cards cover the Chinese words, phrases and expressions in the DVD and book. Used as typical flashcards or to play memory and other games, the cards reinforce the material in a way that provides hands-on learning. They come complete with suggestions for use, including additional games.

  • Parent and Educator Guide: This guide includes tips on how to read Chinese pinyin, a listing of all of the vocabulary taught in the episode, song lyrics and suggestions for how to get the most out of your learning kit.
