Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Christensen
Fans of the Nickelodeon television show "Ni hao, Kai-lan" will enjoy this picture book based on one of the episodes. Although the title suggests this book is an introduction to the characters, it is in fact assumed that children will already be familiar with Kai-lan and her friends, as very little information about them is presented here. In this story, Kai-lan and her friends are making hats to wear to a hat parade. A chart on the inside of the front cover lists the Chinese word, the Chinese characters, English translation, and pronunciation for each of the seven words. A note also explains that an audio pronunciation of the words can be found on the Nickelodeon website. The bright-colored cartoon illustrations match the show's look, with large-eyed, anime-influenced characters. There is no ground-breaking work here; rather the book is a vehicle for the show. A better choice for introducing children to Chinese language and culture would be The Pet Dragon by Christoph Niemann or Grace Lin's Dim Sum for Everyone. Reviewer: Heather Christensen
