I don't review a lot of easy readers, but I do have a first grader in my house who is looking for fun books to read. I grabbed Ling and Ting:Not Exactly the Same by Grace Lin. The six short chapters in this book were perfect for Little Sister, who giggled away as she read.
Ling and Ting do look exactly alike - Chinese American twin girls that dress identically. However, a haircut in the first story changes Ting's appearance just enough so that the two are easy to identify in the subsequent chapters. Little Sister and I had so much fun reading this one that I quickly purchased the kindle version of the second book, Ling and Ting Share a Birthday, which was just as cute and fun.
I can't wait to read more about Ling and Ting in the future.
