New Nick TV Cartoon - Ni Hao Kai Lan

NY Times review of Ni Hao Kai Lan and the Nickelodeon Page. Cartoons are based on Karen Chao's experiences growing up with the Chinese and US culture. Her goal is Kai-lan “to be a Chinese-American role model, to be independent, to have a voice, to take the initiative and to not always have to follow others.”

The show is especially for the 60,000 children adopted from China and the 100,000 children learning Chinese.

A couple of books that deal with the challenge of mixing cultures are by Lensey Namioka, Yang the Youngest and His Terrible Ear, Half And Half, and Yang the Third and the impossible family. For learning English, I Hate English by Ellen Levine is a wonderful book.
