Updated: Sep 4, 2020


Welcome to our online book club for grades K-3! We are excited for you to join us in reading Ling & Ting: Not Exactly the Same! by Grace Lin.


Along with a free copy of the book, you will also receive a review page. You can tell us what you thought of the book! You will also receive a flyer for this website, a questions page to consider, 2 activity pages, and an information page with cool links related to the book!


Kits will be ready to pick up later this evening (September 3, 2020). Please remember that we have a limited number of kits available, so it's first come, first serve! If you have any special requests or need accommodations, please let Leanna or Amanda know!


All we ask is that you read the book: do as much or as little of the rest of it as you want!


"Ling and Ting: Not Exactly the Same!" by Grace Lin


Ling and Ting are two adorable identical twins, and they stick together, whether they are making dumplings, getting their hair cut, or practicing magic tricks. But looks are deceiving; people can be very different, even if they look exactly the same.


*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
