FREE õ Ping õ A picture book that humorously explores the challenges and joys of self expression and social connection This is both a very simplistically told story yet with a hugely deep and meaningful metaphor throughout I almost feel it s one of those books intended for adults otherwise the message is slightly lost in translation but still enjoyable for children nonetheless the illustrations are super cute 3 stars.Excellent idea, confusing storyline.This book uses the metaphor of pinging to send out our communication into the world Smiles, gestures, singing, etc We want to only choose to send positive and honest pings Then we wait to see what pong we will receive back from others My four and five year old were confused by this storyline I liked the general idea of it, but I don t think it was executed in the way the author intended Once I explained it to my children, I think they unde 3 stars.Excellent idea, confusing storyline.This book uses the metaphor of pinging to send out our communication into the world Smiles, gestures, singing, etc We want to only choose to send positive and honest pings Then we wait to see what pong we will receive back from others My four and five year old were confused by this storyline I liked the general idea of it, but I don t think it was executed in the way the author intended Once I explained it to my children, I think they understood, but it took a little discussion for them to wrap their little minds around the concept.Thank you to Hachette Book Group for sending me a physical copy to read and review with my children This book is one big metaphor, with ping pong standing in for personal connection As an adult, I can appreciate the message I have my doubts, however, as to whether kids especially younger ones are going to get it.The simple text likens life to a game of ping pong What you put out there are pings and what comes back to you are pongs You can only control the pings, not the pongs The book basically acts like a simple instruction manual for connecting with others and with the world at This book is one big metaphor, with ping pong standing in for personal connection As an adult, I can appreciate the message I have my doubts, however, as to whether kids especially younger ones are going to get it.The simple text likens life to a game of ping pong What you put out there are pings and what comes back to you are pongs You can only control the pings, not the pongs The book basically acts like a simple instruction manual for connecting with others and with the world at large It s fine, as a premise.The illustrations leave me a bit cold They re too simple for my taste They clearly convey their message, but they re not especially fun to look at.This is a book that will probably be overlooked because it s a picture book But I can see it actually havingvalue to older readers middle grade and up, probably Younger children might like the bright colours and the funny looking characters, but the message will likely go over their heads especially since they re too young to have withdrawn into the world of virtual connection yet This is me, sending out my Ping into the world What a wonderful, wonderful book.
