Ling & Ting Share a Birthday Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ling and Ting are twins. They share a birthday. They bake cakes, and they make birthday wishes. They tell stories and wrap gifts. They also share a birthday secret! The simple text and colorful art makes this early reader a perfect choice for children learning to read.

Review:

"Lin continues to work wonders within the early reader format in twins' Ling and Ting's birthday-themed second outing. In six stories, the girls receive birthday shoes, shop for presents, bake cakes, make wishes, open their gifts, and read a story. Despite working with a limited vocabulary, Lin infuses the twins' every interaction with personality and understated humor, while underscoring the girls' individuality. When baking, 'Ling reads the cookbook very carefully. She mixes butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. Ting does not read the cookbook carefully. She mixes butter, sugar, and eggs.' After the girls exchange gifts, they both hope the other will share hers — and don't need to wait long: 'Ling and Ting like their gifts. But they like the other's gift a bit more.' Lin's utterly cheerful, vintage-inspired gouache illustrations provide many opportunities for children to spot the differences between the twins, and the story's final chapter, in which the girls read about the birthday adventures of a pair of twins named Ming and Sing (who aren't nearly as good at sharing) is a triumph of metafiction. Ages 6 — 9. Agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
