LING & TING: TWICE AS SILLY is an engaging book to entice beginning readers to try longer stories. Each short story rewards readers with a funny punch line, a sure way to motivate kids to try reading on their own. Author-illustrator Grace Lin's brightly colored paintings are full of sweet details, such the girls' matching outfits and mismatched shoes and Ting's cupcake garden markers.

There are moments of touching empathy, too: Ting is crestfallen when her cupcakes don't sprout, and Ling regards her with growing concern as she watches the garden in vain. This book celebrates sisters, best friends, and partners in mischief -- and the delight to be had with creativity and imagination.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
