My First Everyday Words in Cantonese & English introduces Cantonese language and culture to preschool children. This book is unique in its focus on colloquial Cantonese, not formal written Chinese. Chinese characters are color-coded to the pronunciation and English translation. This book is ideal for when families or caregivers are not fully fluent in spoken Cantonese or written Chinese.

Starting with "Good Morning ", this picture book contains conversational questions, phrases and words to take you through a day in the life of a toddler. Each word is written in traditional Chinese characters, Jyutping and simplified phonetic English. A special section for dim sum, a Cantonese cuisine and tradition of small, bite-sized plates, is also included.
