Examining the Text Quality of English/Chinese Bilingual Children's Picture Books
Huang, Qiaoya; Chen, Xiaoning
International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, v19 n5 p475-487 2016
As a branch of multicultural literature, bilingual children's picture books present a special opportunity for readers to expand their horizons and knowledge of other cultures. The researchers took a closer look at the text quality of 31 English/Chinese bilingual children's picture books. These bilingual books were examined on the aspects of the English text's quality, the Chinese text's quality, and the correspondence between the English text and the Chinese text. The findings suggested that while the English text had no obvious issues, the Chinese text lacked quality. In addition, the researchers noticed that the Chinese text appeared subordinate when comparing the two texts.
