“You must take care of this jacket, Kai,” Great Grandfather said. “It is a wondrous gift that has been passed down through many generations...It is given to every firstborn child as a way for you to see and hear the wisdom of your ancestors. When you wear the jacket, it is our sign to come visit you and help you make wise choices.”
Kai And The Magic Jacket helps young children develop their natural instinct by introducing its story with three ancestral spirits...Kids will learn valuable lessons as it relates to family tradition, cultural heritage, developing wisdom, respect for elders, competition and anger, making choices, peer pressure and acceptance. This is a wonderful book to complement the values that children are taught, helping them become well-rounded and emotionally intelligent individuals. Kai And The Magic Jacket is now available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Jacket-Tricia-Chinn-Campbell/dp/0615585051.
About the Author:
Tricia Chinn Campbell, a former advertising executive born and raised in Seattle, Washington, shares her love for her Chinese heritage with a children’s story targeting 4-8 year olds. While pregnant with her son Chance in 2007, the author wanted to develop a story featuring a half-Chinese/half-Anglo (aka “hapa”) boy that would capture the imagination of all children, regardless of their ethnicity and/or cultural background. A sweet familial story, beautifully illustrated, that delivers a terrific lesson for your readers."
“In this day and age, when we are often separated from our extended family, who wouldn’t want that loving support and guidance delivered in a beautiful, magical way? Readers will enjoy learning a bit about Chinese culture and about how listening to your inner voice can help you navigate difficult situations. I hope to read more about Kai soon!”
“Kai and the Magic Jacket depicts the importance and value of family, and that it takes a strong individual to stand up and say "no" to bad influences. If only every child had a magic jacket to help them.”
“This delightful story has a bright, young character at its center who loves his family and gains self-confidence and maturity as he comes of age. Kai is a great role model for Asian readers, but the beauty of this book is that the lessons he learns are applicable to all children; the positive message is universal. This book deserves a place on the bookshelf of any child growing up and experiencing peer pressure. Bravo to author Tricia Chinn Campbell for telling Kai’s story with such humor and compassion.”
