Laszlo, Host of The China History Podcast

My 4 year old daughter absolutely loves it and having her mother and I read it to her in both languages. She really loves the pictures of all the food and pointing out what she likes the most (the dumplings). As soon as we read it we had to go straight back to the start
and read it again.
