Book Review Thursday: Lai-Lai Meets Chub-Chub by Dr. Aaron Chokan

Lai-Lai Meets Chub-Chub is a cute picture book my girls really enjoyed reading with me. They loved the illustrations and how they had a chance to help shout out names to Lai-Lai for her to think about when deciding what to name her new puppy. My youngest really loved talking about each nature scene and different sense used to illustrate the idea or name Lai-Lai thought about before looking for a new name, while trying to name her new puppy.

What I really liked about the book was how it teaches young children they are able to do things they sometimes wait or even expect an adult to do for them. It teaches self-confidence and empowerment at a very simple level.

About the Book:
The book Lai-Lai Meets Chub-Chub is a book about a young preschool girl (mirrored after my daughter Calais) who struggles to find the "perfect" name for her new puppy. She spends her day outside learning how nature can truly give her ideas for a name. She also asks for listener participation by asking the reading audience for some help. She finally comes up with the name Chub-Chub and is delighted.
