《给孩子的汉字王国》以图文并茂的形式讲述中国文字的起源和特点,主要选取一些与人的生活有关的字,按章讲述,如人与人类,水与山,家畜,车、路和船,农耕,酒和器皿,麻与丝、竹与树、工具与武器,屋顶与房子,书籍与音乐等,同时分析和讲述中国人的生活方式和风俗习惯 ,加深读者对文字的理解。此书出于瑞典汉学家之手,作为一个外国人,她对每一个汉字都充满了好奇,比如为什么人们把自来水的开关称之为“龙头”?为什么人们把怀孕叫做“有身子了”?“身”和“孕”有什么关系?为什么许多中国人见了面不问“你好”,而问“你吃了吗?”等等。书中只讲述了200多个“基本汉字”,它们大多是中国人*早创造使用的汉字。可以说,这是一本孩子学习汉字的通俗易懂的入门书。
