I like the Lina Ng books alot, but also found some of the puzzles a bit odd. I have grade 8 theory, but was completely incapable of doing the puzzle on page 31 of My First Theory Book! My 7 year old pupil worked out what was supposed to happen and explained it to me! Mimi is the rabbit, Lili is the duck and Lulu is the cat!
Me too! I had to pore over it for ages before I worked it out.

I've done a spreadsheet which compares the content of each book so it's easy for me to see which book to jump to!
I love a good spreadsheet, but had never thought of doing this with book content. Can I take a bet that you file your books in alphabetical order according to author surname? or is that just me
Back to the topic - I have used Lina Ng before - both the sticker books, the Theory for Young Children and the Grade 1 books. I haven't been thrilled with them though - there is so much repetition some it feels like they are doing lines!
Recently I tried out the Ying Ying Ng books (sticker books and Grade 1 books). I love them. The material is constantly presented in different ways. One of the parents told me that this is very like their schoolwork (mum of a six year old).
Are Lina Ng and Ying Ying Ng related? Or is that me assuming that the last part of a name is a surname, in the western style?
