A Present for Kai-lan by Ellie Seiss

Seiss, Ellie. A Present for Kai-lan. Simon and Schuster, 2010. $5.99. BOARD BOOK. It is Kai-lan’s birthday and her friends: Hoho, Lulu, Rintoo, and Tolee decide to give her a special present. They put in a box all the things she loves: flowers, balloons, and dinosaurs. But before they can give it to her, Tolee ruins the present. Kai-lan and her friends clean it up and she explains that friends are the best present. The thick “chock-a-block” pages are fun and easy to turn for small fingers. The cartoon illustrations are bright and the characters familiar. Pre-K – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
