I have a kid's book for learning "378汉字.“ Each page has six or eight entries, each comprising a photo, the character, and what I suppose is an example of use. But none of the examples make any sense. I have looked up the words (according to how a segmenter program divides them) but cannot come up with any reasonable English translation. I've only tried one page, which has:
刀 刀口刀柄 勺 马勺铁勺 筷 筷筒火筷 尺 格尺尺度 叉 交叉叉烧 帘 纱帘帘幕
Also tried Google Translate, but (no surprise) the results there were worse than my attempts—and I can't even pass HSK 1 yet.
