Welcome to Flip For Joy!

Welcome to Flip for Joy - a Singapore-based children's bookstore, dedicated to sourcing the best Chinese books around the world. As parents, we realise the value and importance of learning the Chinese language from a young age.  In our search for good chinese books, we found ourselves asking ,"Which books should my child be reading? How can I read to my child if I’m not that proficient in Chinese? Where can we purchase good Chinese books?"

At Flip for Joy , we present you a fine selection of books that meet our expectations - fun, exciting and engaging. With each book, we will share why it was chosen, the benefits it will bring and how as a parent, you can use it to enrich the learning experience of your child.  Consider our recommendations and decide which books are best suited for your child.
