My kids had lots of fun reading and playing with words in this book. As the name of it, the book is full of playful rhythms and lovely simple poems. My kids enjoyed learning the colorful nuance of words and they learned some new words and nice expressions in both languages. Kudos to the author in showing how each word can be expressed differently in English and in Vietnamese with all the cultural sentiments. The books brought the warm gratitude and love for family, for nature, for feeling and emotion, for being different and unique. It is so beautiful and touching. We love the cheerful illustration so much - each page tells a new mellow story full of lovely color.

Tug of Words

This book is very rhythmic. My kid likes to read it. The illustrator also did an awesome job at drawing each page and picking out the colors. For me, the message about family conveyed in the book is very touching, especially the last page "we are together until the end".

Tug of Words

The book was a detailed guideline on part 2 of the IELTS Speaking Test. The tips are highly useful and practical. I particularly love the vocabulary check at the beginning of every sample speech which gives me a preview of the interesting words that will show up in the sample.

Gia đình nên là nơi mà mỗi chúng ta cảm thấy được yêu thương nhiều nhất. Tug of Words là một trong số sách hiếm hoi dành cho những em bé như Hallie và cho những gia đình đa chủng tộc như của tác giả.

Tug of Words

If you want your child to master English or Vietnamese though literature, this is a great book to start with! We love the rhyming, the gracefulness and the accuracy of the translation from English to Vietnamese. The pictures are also very cute! I’m an elementary school teacher and use this book both at home with my own kids and at school to teach my students about diversity.


Tug of Words

The poems in this collection offer an innocent and playful description of the plants and living creatures in the author's garden. While the world was on lockdown during the Covid pandemic, she found a way to celebrate the resilience and beauty of nature. In simple and creative language, the poems show appreciation for the natural world that surrounds us. The discussion questions and activities in the book are a helpful addition if one wants to use the book in a language or a writing class.

The Beautiful Garden

The images are evocative and the rhymes are delightful. I just loved the child making a "bad" face and preparing to launch a meatball. This is a wonderful gift for Vietnamese speakers or for children with Vietnamese friends. This hardback should last for many, many readings.

Deborah Healey

Tug of Words

Book has provided numerous open conversations introducing my grandchildren to differences in one's language, appearance, heritage and race. We frequently pull the globe of the world out to discuss the different locations around the world and how people in each part of the country have differences and similarities.

The IELTS Speaking Part 2 book was a great purchase! If you or anyone you know needs help with the speaking sections on the exam, this is the book for you. The size of the book is perfect as well. You're given the information you need. Short enough where it is not intimidating, and not overly long makes for a great read. You can also use the Eduling app as you work your way through the book. It makes the learning process fun and easy! Highly recommend!


IELTS Speaking Part 2

I really enjoyed reading this book with my daughter over and over again. It’s a perfect portrayal of any modern family with lots of diversity and cultural differences. My daughter especially loves the beautiful illustrations. Her comment was “This book is really cute and sweet!”

The book is divided into several short poems, each with its own unique theme and enchanting characters. Every page brings something new and exciting for children to explore. The simple and rhythmic verses make it easy for young readers to follow along and engage with the stories.
