Kai And The Magic Jacket by Tricia Chinn Campbell

Kai gets a jacket on his birthday that is an anonymous gift.  He likes the looks but doesn't understand the magic in the beginning...

Blissful Thinking Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published the first of August.

When Kai goes to bed that evening, he sees ghosts!  They are his ancestors, and they will be with him when he wears his new coat.  These ghosts are friendly and loving and Kai feels reassured.

The nicest part of this story is that Kai gets good common sense advice from them and he learns to be more mature.  My grandparents taught me that, so I can relate to that theme.

The illustrations are beautiful, the book is fun to read, and you get a bit of Chinese culture mixed in, too.  It's a very nice story for young ones.  Give it a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
