The Story About Ping

By Marjorie Flack
Illustrated by Kurt Wiese

For ages 3–6

This classic children’s book was first published in 1933 and is still as delightful and relevant as ever.

Ping’s owner takes him and his siblings to the river for dinner. When it’s time to go, Ping is the last duck in the water and, as such, will receive a spanking.

To avoid punishment, he hides only to be captured the next morning by a young boy for his family’s dinner.

Finally Ping is set free, and when he sees his master’s boat, the last thing he fears is a spanking – he’s just thankful to be home.

Why picture books?

Picture books cover a diverse range of topics, expose children to words and language they might not hear normally in conversation, and teach children how reading works (left to right, top to bottom). While picture books might be too hard for early readers to read by themselves at first, the books are not too hard to understand. Reading picture books with your child will inspire them to learn to read on their own, and experience the pleasure of reading.
