In the elementary school author’s words:
This book came to be over one summer, when my mother was testing my ability to write Chinese characters from memory. She would say the character aloud, use it in a sentence she dictated and ask me to write the character not only correctly but in the right stroke order.
Then I started to create my own sentences and write them on the white board. Little by little, I came up with the idea to write this book. My mother helped me make this book possible. Thank you, Mom!
Thanks also goes to Grandma, who helped as my Chinese language consultant for things Mom was not certain about.
然後我開始創作我的句子並且將句子寫在白板上。 逐漸地，我想出一個理念去寫這本書。 我的媽媽幫助我令到這本書成為可能的事。 多謝你，媽媽！
