Meet Kai-lan by Mickie Matheis (Adapter), Jason Fruchter (Illustrator), Aka Chikasawa (Illustrator)

Daughter’s age when read: Almost 3 years old

My daughter is a huge fan of the Ni Hao Kai-lan TV show and has to watch an episode every day so when I saw this one I had to pick it up for her.  I almost regretted it as since then we have had to read it at least once a day if not more often.  It is very cute though that after the first day of reading it over and over my daughter had it pretty much memorized and could “read” it to herself.  Then one day as we were watching the TV show I found out it is pretty much the same story as one of the episodes where Kai-lan wants to make her own mao zi (hat) and then have a hat parade with all her friends.  It’s a cute story and my daughter especially seems to love the part where Kai-lan’s hat flies away and Lulu has to help rescue it.  If your kids are fans of Kai-lan this is definitely a book to check out.
