Lyn Lyn's beloved Nai Nai has a birthday party approaching! All Lyn Lyn wants to do is make a lucky hat for her very special grandma, but her crochet skills are not nearly as refined as Nai Nai's.

So Lyn Lyn hatches a plan for the best crocheter she knows to help her make the perfect lucky hat for Nai Nai!

Through perseverance and their special bond, Lyn Lyn comes to realize that the perfect gift for Nai Nai comes from within.

Kim-Hoa Ung is a Chinese American author-illustrator and amigurumi artist. Just like Lyn Lyn, she crocheted hats for her grandma. When Kim-Hoa is not creating stories, you can find her crocheting pieces for art shows, sending snail mail, and making arts and crafts with her kids. She lives with her family in Southern California. A Gift for Nai Nai is her debut picture book.

"Debut author/illustrator Ung’s use of gentle pastel colors paired with soft textures brings an additional layer of cozy warmth to this tale of intergenerational connection. Each stage of Lyn Lyn’s crochet journey, from her initial frustration to her renewed determination and creative problem-solving, is sure to resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to pick up a new skill. The book concludes with a crochet pattern for Nai Nai’s hat. Nai Nai is depicted using a wheelchair. A sweet story celebrating the special bond between a granddaughter and her grandmother ."—Kirkus Reviews
