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"These cheerful stories, with their flat, 50's-style illustrations, tell an inescapable truth: twins have to negotiate everything." -New York Times Book Review
