Poems in Chinese with translation into English help you understand the meaning of each line of the poem. An English translation of Chinese rhymes for children does not mean that Chinese children’s poems are translated word by word. A literary English translation and pictures help you get the general idea and message of the children’s rhyme rather than the exact meaning of each word.
