On the power of our words and the protective shield of story.
Hello, Ambre and Amanda! I loved today's podcast; thank you so much for sharing with us such wonderful books! I now have a few of them on hold with my library. : ) Being a Mandarin linguist, I am able to provide some insight into correctly pronouncing Kat Zhang's surname -- in Mandarin, the letter a makes the 'ah' sound. Also, for Zhang Heng, in Mandarin, the letter e makes the 'uh' sound. I hope that helps. : )
