Luka® can read these books!
Finally, arts for little children as young as 4 years old! JoJo loves these 你好，艺术！(nǐ hǎo, yì shù) Hello! Arts! books for many reasons:
- Written and designed especially for the youngest readers. Finally, we can engage preschoolers in art appreciation! The books look at the "big" arts from a child's eyes: With Van Gogh's paintings, let's swirl, swirl, swirl! With Monet's paintings, let's chase the Sun! Picasso... how many faces are there? Which side is the person looking at?...
- Uses poems, conversations and interactive activities to engage young readers.
- No terminology. No big words. No abstract concepts. Arts are here and now.
- 165 exquisite, beautifully printed paintings from 50 museums around the world.
- Appreciation of 13 master artists' style and paintings
- Children love them！Best sellers in Japan since 1993 with numerous awards.
For more sophisticated Chinese readers ages 12+, JoJo recommends the DaDa Global Art Enlightenment Series.

Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me":
Ages 3+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka® or a caregiver.
"Read by myself":
The limited text per page and the prevalence of common language make it a good "bridge book" for readers. The involved plot and detailed illustrations will capture the interest of experienced readers ages 6+.
Option to pair with Luka®:
Consider adding Luka®, the reading robot, to your order. Luka® reads 70,000 books in Mandarin Chinese!
Set Luka® in front of the book, and it will read aloud any page your child turns to-- creating a unique, independent physical book reading experience even if your child isn't ready to read by themselves. Click to read our founders' personal review of Luka here.
