Clear rating

Ling and Ting are identical twin Chinese American girls with very different personalities and attitudes! As the reader makes their way through six short stories featuring the twins on adventures, each girl’s personality traits become clearer and clearer. Ling and Ting experience haircuts, magic play, cooking, eating, reading and storytelling. Each page has short text bites and an illustration to help young readers interpret the story as it unfolds. With lots of colored swirling patterns, like dots, plaid and stripes (especially in the girls’ dresses), Lin paints thick borders around each square panel illustration. Using a different primary color for each story’s set of panels, Lin ensures children will know these pictures go together and the next set of illustrations are separate. A winsome story about seeing the differences in every person, illustrated clearly, Ling and Ting… is highly recommended for public and elementary school libraries.
