Since 1933, "The Story About Ping" has captivated generations of readers, but never before has it been available in a mass-market paperback format. No one can deny the appeal of the book's hero, the spirited little duck who lives on a boat in the Yangtze River. Full color.
As a child, I loved this story and now as a kindergarten teacher, I love reading this story to my class. The pictures are beautiful and the story never gets boring. This is a favourite with both my two year old and my seven year old as well.
Beautiful little book which follows the adventure of a little duck named ping. This book is used in the five in a row curriculum and has many learning values - eg geography, moral, language and art technique to just name a few. Great book which proves to continue to be a favourite with children and adults alike.
This is a sweet little story about a duck called Ping who lives on a boat on the Yangtze River. It is easy to read again and again to your child without getting bored, and the chances are that you will have warm memories of having this story read to you when you were a child. Itís a the mark of a classic when a book is still popular 70 years after its first publication.
Alyssa, my grand-daughter aged 7, thorougly enjoyed this book. Firstly, it is a story about China from where her mother comes. Then too, it contains a little bit of mystery such as when Ping, having been lost, is found by a liittle boy. Will the little boy help Ping to escape a horrible fate? Read the bopok and find out!
Ping the little duckling left behind, has to find his way back to his boat home and has a life lesson along the way. A true classic.
Beautiful illustrations and a little bit of cultural information make this little book a joy for many generations to come.
As a child this was my favorite story to listen while at school.(I also believe this is where my love for Indian Runner Ducks came from) :)
A story with a moral for children and adults alike. It is one that has proven its worth over time. All readers will be able to relate to Ping and his quest to find his family. Worth a read and one to keep.
A classic story we all remember from our own childhood - great to be able to share it with my children. This is a 'budget' paperback (which is very good value for money) other versions, possibly higher quality are available for slightly more money.
