Nick Jr.’s “Ni hao, Kai-lan”

I saw a show today on Nick Jr. called Ni hao, Kai-lan.

It’s described on the Web site as, “Ni Hao, Kai-lan is a play-along, think-along series that weaves together Chinese language and culture, preschool-relatable stories, and interactivity, with Kai-lan as your intimate friend and playmate!”

The story was very simple, obviously, as the show is for very young children, and it reminded me of Dora the Explorer in the way it casually wove Chinese words into the story and conversations of the kids. I enjoyed it!
