House & Home

by Jintao



Jintao is a female scientist who loves her family and her work. Kaichi is the assistant who loves house-building with all sorts of blocks. Through this bilingual story session, they want to convey the warm concept of "home is wherever the family members are". A house is only the carrier of home, while love is the essence.

  1. Nursery rhyme: Red House, Tree House, Little Bitty Brown Mouse

Our first story for today’s bilingual time is a Nursery rhyme, called Red House, Tree House, Little Bitty Brown Mouse. In this story, we will follow an adventurous little mouse to find her way around a variety of places. See if you can track this little bitty brown mouse in every scene!


  1. Fiction: The Moogees Move House

Our second story is about a family of Moogees. You ask me what is a moogee? Honestly speaking – I have no idea! All I know is that they are some silly funny characters in this fiction. Now let’s see what kind of house the Moogee family got in the end.


  1. Fiction based on a true story: Building Our House

Have you ever moved from one house to another (just like those Moogees)? If you did, do you still remember the day when you first moved into your current house? Was it empty or furnished? Did you feel tired or happy, or both? In the next story, we are going to read about how a literal house was built by a couple and their kids, and in the end, you will find out how they felt about their new house on their first day. I want to point out that this fiction is based on a true story – yes, there was literally a family like them who built a literal house by themselves!
