Ling and Ting are twins. They like to stick together. They get haircuts and they make dumplings. They do magic tricks and they read books. They stick together and look alike. But they are not exactly the same.
Have fun with Ling and Ting!
While there are some excellent books with modern Asian-American characters for older children, there are very few in the early-reader category. Ling and Ting: Not Exactly the Same! is a fine addition to the shelf. Even the youngest children should find themselves drawn along to the next page by engaging stories that unfold illustration by illustration…perfect for the young reader not ready to give up pictures. And while there may be little new ground to break about twins, there is something satisfying in the symmetry of these sisters and in their effortless individuality. They remind us that apparent uniformity yields to originality when we give it the attention it deserves.
