Ling & Ting Share a Birthday

K-Gr 2—In this charming early reader, twins Ling and Ting share everything, including, of course, their birthdays. The six short chapters offer multiple chances for Ling and Ting to solve dilemmas concerning sharing things, ranging from birthday shoes to birthday wishes. Lin presents various opportunities for prediction [huh?] and retelling. The gentle repeating sentence and story structures will assure listening comprehension. Angela Lin's controlled and deliberate pacing is ideal for this target audience. A track with page turn signals is a bonus for those who have the print book at hand. Well worth adding to libraries looking for titles for younger listeners.—Terri Perper, Middletown Public Library, MD
