5 Minute Review: Again, this book is full of fun, extremely detailed illustrations that all my kids love to flip through and look at (even if they are not necessarily reading). Because the book is going down underground, it flips downward (which is my only complaint because it makes me motion sick because having a child hold the book while you attempt to read it is nausea-inducing).

Lots of fun layers underground and lots of fun animals to see. The vocabulary is easy enough to guesd if you are unfamiliar with the characters but I wish it had zhuyin. 

No video this week because otherwise you will see just how bad my Chinese is.
