Teaching my son, Sawyer, Mandarin myself while living in NYC has been challenging. Resources are limited and when they are available, they are typically written in Simplified Chinese & Pinyin (used in China) and not Traditional Chinese & BoPoMoFo (used in Taiwan where I grew up). So I created these BoPoMoFo flashcards for Sawyer.
Drawing inspiration from my son's favorite things (bubbles, trains, and cats top the list) I illustrated each symbol with a corresponding image and word. ​​​​​​​
After creating a set for ourselves I thought it would be fun to sell them. So, to the horror of everyone else living in my small NYC apartment with me, I made 500 boxes. They are available for purchase here
