No question about it. The very first book I can remember was about Ping, a little yellow duck that lived on the Yangtze River. I now know that the book is The Story about Ping, written by Marjorie Flack and illustrated by Kurt Wiese, first published in 1933. For some reason, Ping has stayed with me over the years, never quite out of mind. I made sure both of our children knew it. When we have grandchildren, I will ensure that they know it.
