Storytime!

Earlier this month I had the privilege of being a reader for a group of youngsters. I got to read one of my favorite books, It’s Time To Eat (Chinese Edition), and talk to the kids about being an author.  The energetic kindergartners made me feel very welcome and I really enjoyed spending some time with them.  We explored the adventures together with Marcus the Monkey and his friends, and discussed different kinds of food for different animals.

Books have the power to benefit toddlers and preschoolers in a myriad of ways. As a parent, reading to your child is one of the most important things you can do to prepare him with a foundation for academic excellence. Read aloud to your kids, start early and stay with it!

A Moment – Another Daily Sketch.

I’m always dreaming one day I can have a room full of books, enough for me to read for a whole life. When I was in college, the best place I would go when I had time was the library. During those years I was interested in several subjects so much, and I went to the library to borrow all the books available on those subjects. One of them was Translation. I still remembered that I browsed at least hundreds of books on Translation. How to translate essay, novel, poetry, science, and different ways to do the translation. I think that’s one of my favorite subjects. Till today, I still enjoy reading different versions of translation about one article, and feel the beauty of language. A beautiful translation is like an artwork, smooth, elegant, flowing seamlessly with message and feelings.
