Hello, my name is Chris Lin, creator of Mandy and Pandy. As an American of Chinese descent, learning Chinese was not an option. I did not look forward to my childhood Chinese classes, boring! When my wife, Kristi, and I adopted our awesome daughter from China, Amanda Chengmu Lin, I wanted her to have a better experience learning Mandarin Chinese and bridge the two cultures she was born into. The bookstore had 128 books in Spanish and only 6 in Chinese and thus, the Mandy and Pandy series was born!  What about you?
