Panda Cub Stories are stories told bilingually in Mandarin Chinese and English. Right now, Panda Cub Stories is adapting Class Chinese folktales into Children's audio-visual stories! * For videos that accompany these audio stories, Subscribe to the Panda Cub Stories YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9adM3OzsVRUr1caH8C_PUQ?sub_confirmation=1 *** Pssst! I'm also working to re-adapt Journey to the West, considered one of the “Four Great Classical Novels” of Chinese Literature, into a podcast and picture book series! I'll be sharing snippets of this here as well!

Fun and educational
The narrator has a very sweet voice. In English, she speaks with an American accent and her Chinese accent is very cosmopolitan. Very relevant for children learning Mandarin. Thank you for an excellent podcast. Looking forward to your series.
Great for Restless Adults as Well as Kids
I listen to this podcast at night to help me fall asleep, and I mean that in the best way. It's not boring, just engaging and relaxing! It's also interesting to learn about aspects of Chinese culture/language that I'd never been exposed to before. Linda does a great job!
So happy to have found this podcast!
My 9yo daughter and I love this podcast! It’s a super fun way for me to brush up on some Chinese, and my daughter is really engaged with the story. The length of episodes are perfect for young attention spans, and we listen to an episode to and from school each day. My only problem is turning it off when my daughter leaves! The story is great, the sound effects are fun, and the Chinese is a great speed and level that we can both follow as non-native speakers. I HIGHLY recommend, especially for parents with kids in bilingual Chinese programs.
