Xiaoning's Picks

  • Magnetic Poetry Kids' Chinese Kit  When I saw this popular magnet set in French and Spanish, I thought, "Why not Chinese, too?" After approaching the manufacturer, ChinaSprout co-developed and translated the new Chinese edition. An exceptionally fun way to learn the language!
  • 101 Stories for Foreigners to Understand Chinese People It can be hard for Westerners to understand the intricacies of Chinese customs and etiquette. When I saw this book at the China Book Fair, I knew it was just what I want for my customers - or anyone interested in China.
  • Dragon Design Silk Top  Three key things make this shirt a ChinaSprout bestseller: the flying dragon design, the vivid colors and the comfortable fit. It's sure to brighten your spring wardrobe!


Summon spring by helping a child create a Chinese kite or paint a pretty halter top! Consider replacing some of that Easter candy with healthier choices such as our panda puppets, colorful keychains or a snuggly doll named Licorice - Corelle's latest little sweetheart.


With gas prices soaring, there's no better time for armchair travel. So sit back with one or two of these new books and be on your way! This selection will help you speak the language, explore China's long history, and understand Chinese customs. Plus, we've included some handy travel guides so you'll be ready for the real thing!


Kids love playful Mei Mei, and now the language expert is back with two new DVDs to help your kids learn Chinese. Check out the fun new Culture Cubs release, too. A great fit for Easter baskets! Our new assortment of DVDs for adults reveals fascinating details of Chinese dance, costumes, tea and cuisine.
