In honor of Chinese New Year, Nick Jr., is offering a special episode of "Ni Hao, Kai-lan" at 8 tonight.
Think of Kai-lan as Chinese Dora the Explorer, a plucky preschooler who teaches your child Mandarin, rather than Spanish. She has a loving relationship with her Yeye (grandfather), and has three animal pals, Rintoo (tiger); Tolee (koala); and Hoho (monkey).
Tonight the gang is making its way to the ladybug festival for some fun, but the real lesson is about listening.
As they sing: Listen to all of your friends because even the quietest people can have something super important to say.
Words to live by, even for us big people.
And by the way, Ni Hao means "hello" in Mandarin. So you've learned something already.
