Matheis, Mickie Kai-Lan's Great Trip to China. 24 p. Simon Spotlight/Nickelodeon, 2010. $6.99. Language - G; Sexual Content - G; Violence - G. This was adapted from the screenplay Kai-Lan's Great Trip to China. It is fun way to teach and become familiar with common Chinese words. Kai-Lan is going to China for the first time and she makes many new friends along the way. She gets to try many new things and meet a baby panda. This book stresses how important it is to try new things and to not be afraid. The Chinese words with the pronunciation are at the back of book. This book's plot was weak, and it seemed very choppy.
