Books to read in Chinese:
- http://mandarincompanion.com/products/: they have several books. You can start with Level 1 and then move onto Level 2. They are adapted from classic novels, such as Sherlock Homles, Emma, and the Secret Garden. See the samples attached. Level 1 books might be a little hard at the beginning, but if you keep reading, your Chinese will improve a lot.
- http://www.chinesebreeze.net/ : start with Level 1 books and then move up to Level 2 or 3. I read with my high school students before. They loved them and the books was not too hard.
- igniteChinese: Highly recommended. We have those books in the classroom, so you can come to me and have a look at those books.
