Double Book Giveaway!!!

This month, Little Nipper Books is giving away 2 Classic stories; TIKKI TIKKI TEMBO and THE EMPTY POT. One lucky winner will win BOTH! Together they make two magnificent stories, each beautifully illustrating the Chinese culture. Perfect for story time or classroom settings.

Tikki Tikki Tembo (Hardcover)
Retold by Arlene Mosel. Illustrated by Blair Lent. Ages 4-8. This is an old Chinese folktale that continues to be loved by children and adults everywhere. It is a story about a little boy who lived in China. As a first born son he was given the long, honored name, Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo, which meant “the most wonderful thing in the whole wide world”. As time went by, however, his family (and all of China) discovered that there was danger in having such a long name.

The Empty Pot (Hardcover)
Written and Illustrated by Demi. Ages 4-8. When it is time for a Chinese Emperor to name his successor, he decides that the best way to choose his heir is by a simple test. One day he gave all the children in the land a special flower and proclaimed “Whoever can show me their best in a year’s time will succeed me to the throne.” This is a great story where honesty and courage is rewarded.

  1. I try to expose my children to a wide variety of cultures through books. I do not have specific cultures that I focus on. I just let it happen naturally when we pick out books at the library.


  2. My daughter has been wanting to read more books lately. These would be great.
