I bought this book for my granddaughter to help her understand the traditional Chinese New Year culture. Every year for Chinese New Year, we take in the festivities in our local Chinatown and being this was her first experience, I wanted to give her some kind of background. This book is great.
Kai-Lan's Happy Chinese New Year is a great book. It follows the show, so my 2 year old daughter understood the characters and story line right away. If your child likes Kai-Lan, this is a good book to read with her. I really like the English/Chinese/Pronounciation reference at the back.I bought the book because my daughter requested a "book in chinese" and this one has about as much as I can handle (uses Chinese words that I hear on Ni-Hao Kai-Lan [the TV Show]) since I am not a Chinese speaker.I bought 3 Kai-Lan books at one time, and this one has the most Chinese, which I like.
What better way to learn about the Chinese New Year through the Ni Hao Kai-Lan? She's a popular cartoon, that children can quickly relate, too. I also used this book as part of Cultural Playdate: Celebrating Chinese New Year, and it was perfect for story time! The best part of this book are the words translated in the back in Chinese with its pronunciation. Great book!
This was a great book. It was very informative but also had a story line. I was very happy with it.
