greatchina“Ni hao!” That means “hi” in Chinese–and that’s Kai-lan’s greeting when she meets new friends. Kai-lan Chow is a Chinese-American preschooler, nearly 6, who needs kids’ help in finding creative solutions to the daily dilemmas that come her way.  She has a group of bilingual buddies who speak in English and Chinese and children are encouraged to learn new Chinese words by interacting with her online and through the TV shows and DVD specials.

Kai-lan Chow has a dedicated section on the Nick Jr. website. There you’ll find more about the show, the characters as well as fun and free printables for kids.  There are also recipes, games, and craft ideas that tie in with the series.
