    Hello! My name is Maria and I have become the guardian of a 6 year old American Born Chinese girl. She moved to China as an infant and speaks Mandarin.

    My husband and I would like for her to maintain her language. We are struggling to find materials she can use. She does not need beginner Chinese. But she is a beginner reader.

    Do you have any ideas? We are looking for supplemental materials for her to use while attending American public school and at home. We just want her in a literacy program.

    Thank you for your help!
    Maria

Since your girl has some basic in Chinese learning and you said she is a beginning reader. I would recommend she starts with our My First Chinese Readers series and story books.
