Grace Lin's LING & TING Wins Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Award!

Grace Lin

I listened to the ALA Youth Media Awards podcast earlier today. I was SOOOOOO happy when I heard that my good friend Grace Lin had won a (Theodor Seuss) Geisel Honor Award for her first early reader--Ling and Ting: Not Exactly the Same! It's a wonderful book!

Congratulations, Grace!!!

I love "Ling & Ting" too. What a fun book about twin sisters! They are great story characters.
