Chinese Bookstores

Here are a few more online Chinese bookstores for children:

Chinese Books For Children – I know this site was up at least until 4/16/2015, but for the last two days, I haven’t been able to pull anything up.

Still, I will include them because if they come back up, it will be a great thing!

Chinese Bookstores

Here are a few more Chinese bookstores. Keep in mind, I have not used any of these sites. I am merely listing them here on my blog for your convenience.

Right to Learn – According to their site, they provide educational toys, learning resources, Montessori materials, advice, enrichment classes, and workshops to parents, preschools and learning facilities in Singapore and around the world. From my preliminary searches, they don’t seem to have a ton of Chinese resources or books. However, one thing I did like was their Montessori sandpaper cards for Simplified Chinese character strokes.
