A great book for kids learning to read ( )
This is not an educational illustrated book, and there isn't a lot to take away from it, other than the lovely illustrations.
The story is of two boys, the older boy is more revered than the second. When the second brother falls into the well, despite the mother's every day warning, the oldest boy finds the old man with a ladder who assists the recovery.
Later, it is the eldest who falls into the well. The smaller child runs to find the man with the ladder. Because the oldest son is more revered, his name is much longer. The second child is smaller and in his excitement, cannot pronounce the entire name of his brother, thus leading to delay.
After he is recused, his name is now shorter.
Classic tale of two Chinese boys who ignore their mother's warnings, and wind up falling into an old stone well. Fun to read aloud.
I obsessively read this as a kid. I think I still have it memorized.
An incredibly fun read aloud to younger children, elementary age, addressing the question of short names for Chinese boys. This title may actually fall under the "Tall Tale" genre as there is disagreement as to the tale's country or origin and lack of cultural sensitivity. Curriculum tie-ins: Chinese culture?, folktales, tall tales

I hope that people realize that "Tikki Tikki Tembo" contains very INCORRECT information about Chinese culture...What's even more disturbing is that the introduction written inside the book jacket made the story sound like a real folklore.
Below the review is a discussion of both the review and the book.

When the eldest son fell in the well and most of the time getting help was spent pronouncing the name of the one in trouble, the Chinese, according to legend, decided to give all their children short names.
