This is a very famous picture book, okay? There’s also a lot of pages of content; did you eat it all? It’s to allow children to understand how colors change when they are mixed… You can’t use an adult’s way of looking at things to judge children’s reading material, okay…?


Please write a note!!! Other than the first picture, all of the images after it are all TM mine! Thanks!


This is a rather good children’s book, one that has been recommended before for children’s reading courses, to allow a child to understand the three primary colors. It’s very creative.


Bullshit! With such a thick book, how could it just have those few pages!


[笑cry] I happen to be writing an English thesis on this book. [笑cry][笑cry][笑cry] Do you think the author is really simple? [笑cry][笑cry] He is a humanist illustrator who casually and easily made this book while amusing children on a train and then published it. [喵喵][喵喵] How come you guys don’t know he is Leo Lionni? [笑cry] A great illustrator.


Children really like it. Really. A child’s world is not the same as ours.


He! he! Seeing this kind of microblog post really makes me especially angry!!! Don’t think children’s teachers only need to take care of children eating and sleeping. What we have to learn and know how to do far exceeds what you can imagine! If you can’t understand a children’s picture book, then just shut your mouth, okay? A kindergarten I went to last time that emphasized art had an entire staircase wall decorated with this picture book. [拜拜]


If you don’t know/understand something, don’t blindly comment. This is a picture book for pre-school children, able to stimulate a child’s unlimited imagination. In the middle, there are also many pictures of little blues and little yellows in class together, playing games, playing hide-and-seek, going into caves that you did not photograph for everyone to see. Even though they are all blobs of different colors, children enjoy reading it. This is Leo Lionni’s classic picture book, which has won major awards in America, and only introduced into China after domestic children’s education expert Peng Yi translated it.


This is a very famous picture book, okay? There’s also a lot of pages of content; did you eat it all? It’s to allow children to understand how colors change when they are mixed!! My former primary school teacher bought one for his son to read!! This microblog user is a stupid cunt!! Unfollow, unfollow! [拜拜]


This can be used for kindergarten class. Picture books are all this price.

Chinese netizens often surprise: Some of our favorite moments when translating trending Chinese internet content is when the Chinese netizen reactions are not what we expected. We love it when they surprise us with what they think, reassure us with what they feel, and maybe even delight us with what they know. chinaSMACK has aspired to a place where people who cannot read the Chinese language can occasionally eavesdrop on what Chinese netizens talk about among themselves. Please help us continue to be this place. Thank you.

    • Irvin

      not until they get a green ribbon.

      • greenpeas

        haha yea. true… but the book just mentioned that little blue has lots of friends and little yellow is one of them… but it forgot little yellow has lots of friends too. little yellow might not wanna be green at the moment, even when they tried hard to hug and hug :P

    is this an effect of advertisement’s censorship or really this is an hot topic in china? I know that now that will be a frequently asked question, but really is hard to believe that this can be a hot topic

    • Rick in China

      No…..shit…….I’m lost right now trying to figure this one out.

  • monster

    i bought the little prince and Don Quichotte, they are very good picture books.

    • mr.wiener

      Good luck with the plastic surgery, try to remember it is what is inside that is important too.

      • monster

        i already decide to be a totally bad woman.

        • mr.wiener

          It’s nice to set goals.

  • ClausRasmussen

    I agree with the Chinese commentors that the OP misrepresents the book, there are many more pages in it. It gets glowing reviews and a 4.6/5.0 rating on Amazon:

  • filabusta

    This was my first fully read Chinese book.

  • i call this deliberate misinformation……

  • mistertibbs4u

    At first glance… I was prepared to say… “This is the best book I have EVER seen on human reproduction…”

  • Bing

    i hereby claim you are a true Chinese.
