Get Dressed With Kai-lan by Natalie Shaw (Author), Kellee Riley (Illustrator)

Daughter’s age when read: 3 yrs old

For the last three nights this one has joined Going on a Bear Hunt and various Curious George books in the nightly line up.  In fact, it was finally the book that knocked Green Eggs and Ham, the reining bed time book champ, out of the line up.  She is a huge fan of the Kai-lan TV show as I’ve mentioned before so that contributes to the interest.  It’s a cute book that talks about the different types of clothing Kai-lan wears in the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.  It’s a quick read compared to Meet Kai-lan and each of the pages that show her outfits have some sort of touch and feel aspect to it (i.e. her pajamas are fuzzy, her hood is fluffy, etc.) so this might appeal to younger children as well that like the touch and feel books.  Again, this is a great one to check out of the library and if my daughter were younger I may have bought it but now I think it may be too simplistic to keep her attention for long.  It’s perfect for bed time though because it ends with Kai-lan brushing her teeth, listening to a story and then going to sleep.
