Tikki Tikki Tembo

Rikki Tikki Tembo is a retelling of a traditional Chinese story about why the Chinese give their children short names. I was introduced to this book by my elementary school librarian and read it frequently as a child. Today when Dogger asked me to read it to him I watched his face and it reminded me so much of my brother, Casey, and how he also loved this book.

The art inside is just as lovely as the cover. It's just a great children's book.

This was one of my favorites as well. There must be something in our blood...

Okay, I love love this book too but don't you think the old man with the ladder is smokin' something?
