Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” in Chinese! 好饿的毛毛虫

We found more than one Chinese version of Eric Carle‘s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” online, and together with our tutor tried to combine the best parts of each. Here’s our most recent draft. Mouseover the Chinese text to see the pronunciation and definition. Suggestions for improvement are welcome!

饿毛毛虫

小小

星期天早晨暖暖太阳升起来——!——饿毛毛虫

四下寻找可以东西星期一穿苹果还是觉得饿

星期二穿梨子还是觉得饿

星期三穿李子还是觉得饿

星期四穿草莓还是饿受不了

星期五穿桔子还是饿

星期六穿巧克力蛋糕冰淇淋甜筒黄瓜瑞士奶酪萨拉米香肠棒棒糖樱桃蛋糕还有西瓜到了晚上胃痛起来

第二天星期天毛毛虫穿嫩嫩绿一回感觉好多

现在一点儿饿——不再毛虫胖嘟嘟毛虫

自己身子叫做房子里面星期

然后洞洞出来……

变成美丽蝴蝶

  1. Fabulous!

    Any chance you could post the pinyin and translation as text, interleaved with the Chinese — e.g. something more like


    hao
    very

    If so, it’d be awesome! But either way, thanks for posting this!

  2. Sure. I’ll put it as a pdf download, maybe tonight if I get time. I know that’s an easier format, but I like the mouseover method for when I’m trying to learn to read. If pinyin is there, my eyes automatically go to the pinyin.

  3. A pdf would be great. Thanks! I know what you mean about your eye going to the pinyin, but the truth is, I ain’t far enough along yet not to use it in almost every case.

  4. Great!! I just started with Chinese on marche and I think this will be very helpful, specially the pdf. Thank! :D
