Learning the words of comparison is not difficult. As you may have discovered, the character 比bǐ is used when comparing two subjects. In details, the words of comparison are:
他比我高。 Tā bǐ wǒ gāo. (He is taller than me.)
他比我矮。 Tā bǐ wǒ ǎi. (He is shorter than me.)
他和我一样高。 Tā hé wǒ yí yang gāo. (He is as tall as me.)
她的头发比我的长。 Tā de tóu fa bǐ wǒ de cháng. (Her hair is longer than mine.)
她的头发比我的短。 Tā de tóu fa bǐ wǒ de duǎn. (Her hair is shorter than mine.)
她的头发和我的一样长。 Tā de tóu fa hé wǒ de yí yang cháng. (Her hair is as long as mine.)
更 gèng (more)
更高 gèng gāo (taller)
最 zuì (most)
最高 zuì gāo (tallest)
他更高。 Tā gèng gāo. (He is taller.)
她最高。 Tā zuì gāo. (She is the tallest.)
I have made a set of cards on Quizlet (quizlet.com or download the app for phone or ipad) to help your child practice learning the words of this topic.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose comparison.

You do not need to know any Mandarin yourself to use any of these resources.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
