  • Praise for Ling & Ting Share a Birthday:
    *"The girls' differing personalities and sisterly affection continue to shine...Once again Lin's richly colored gouache artwork, based on 1950s children's textbook illustrations, gives reason enough to celebrate. Tw-inspiring fiction for beginning readers."
    (Kirkus, starred review).

  • *"Lin continues to work wonders within the early reader format in twins' Ling and Ting's birthday-themed second outing...Despite working with a limited vocabulary, Lin infuses the twins' every interaction with personality and understated humor, while underscoring the girls' individuality." (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

  • "Even though this is a short and simple early chapter book, the characters are fully developed and distinct, and children should be encouraged to infer the protagonists' traits. An excellent stand-alone purchase or addition for libraries already familiar with these endearing sisters." (School Library Journal).

    * "[I]n the same category as Arnold Lobel's 'Frog and Toad'"
    (SLJ, starred review).

  • * "[A] stunning entree into the world of early readers" (Kirkus, starred review).

  • * "[The] paintings illustrate the stories with restrained lines, vivid colors, and clarity...[Lin] shows her versatility once agin in an original book that tells its story clearly while leaving room for thought and discussion." (Booklist, starred review).

  • "[A] pocketful of small stories about individuality that interlock like twists of DNA then tumble together for an exuberant finish..."Ling and Ting" is as delectable as any of Lin's illustrated books, perfect for the young reader not ready to give up pictures." (The New York Times).
