Offshore Chinese-language textbooks tend to be localized and geared toward younger students. In the context of Sino-Portuguese cultural exchange and Bay Area integration, Macau has established a distinctive form of Chinese language teaching. Macau is seeking to discontinue the importation of Chinese language textbooks and instead publish Chinese language textbooks written by local authors for children. This study utilized interpretive structural modeling to analyze the sample textbook's knowledge hierarchy and distribution of local elements. The researcher aimed to determine how the local elements of Chinese language textbooks for children in Macau influence the students’ learning transfer. The results indicated that local elements are integrated into the structural levels of the teaching materials through the medium of the field landscape, the resemblance of the genre, and the adhesion of regional culture. The three levels of macro-environmental, meso-interactive development and micro-individual dynamics of the materials demonstrated that the local elements have varying degrees and types of learning transfer impacts on child learners. Finally, we provided recommendations on the local elements of textbooks for the children's learning transfer.
