Meet Lulu Cheng, a wife, mom of 2 bitty babes, with her newest title - Bitty Bao Boss. Since her bitty babes were born, Lulu has worked hard to embed Chinese language and culture into everything that they do. Lulu's struggle to find cute bilingual Chinese books for her kids' bedtime soon evolved into a #bigbittydream to make Chinese board books of her own for families just like hers. She looks forward to sharing her journey of parenting, homemade Chinese teaching resources, and some late night bookmaking with you.

A firewife, mom of a wee bitty babe, and the other half of the dynamic Bitty Bao Duo - meet Lacey Benard. As an American-Born-Chinese woman, raised without the gift of Chinese as a second language, Lacey is hoping to now prioritize language acquisition for her bitty babe through bilingual books, cultural events, and their school district's Mandarin dual immersion program. Lacey can often be found in the middle of the night hand cutting tiny bits of paper into cute images for the Bitty Bao books and hopes that you enjoy seeing them come to life in the books as much as she does.
