    This is a cute little book for the early reader. The illustrations are fun. The story as imaginative as I expect of Gita V. Reddy. I actually read this a few days ago and am just now getting around to reviewing but the experience stays clear for me. Mostly because some of my offspring and I are dyslexic. This would have been helpful for all of us as early readers. Ms. Reddy sent me an email a bit ago offering the read for honest review.

I actually read this a few days ago and am just now getting around to reviewing but the experience stays clear for me. Mostly because some of my offspring and I are dyslexic. This would have been helpful for all of us as early readers. Ms. Reddy sent me an email a bit ago offering the read for honest review. I was more than willing as I have loved most of what she has presented to me to read. This was just as fun as the rest. As usual, there is a story, with morals and fun adventures. As it was for the children, the book was fine. I just wish there were more hints or ideas for parents and teachers. Gita does say that one needs more practice with many letters like M and W. But L and 7 come to mind for me, lower case U and lower case N, lower case Q and lowercase G, lower case B and lower case D, 3 and E. I'm sure there are others that get confused. In fact, most letters can be switched backward or upside down. These were all so confusing to me as a kid and I had to watch my boys go through the same confusion. Nowadays, while studying German, I am finding my old nemesis 'I before E...' coming back at me because in German it is the other way around. So dyslexia still plays havoc in my life. But this book is a start for the new generation of readers to play with. As for the story and pictures, I love the one where the grandfather is emptying the box of wooden letters on the floor for Minki to play with. Having tactile experiences with the letters is so important for children who are learning about the alphabet. Great job, Gita. I hope this will spare many children and the parents the confusion of letters that won't stay in the right directions.

    Minky has a box of letters. Having a hard time between the "p" and the "q", she tosses them out her window. Soon she learns how the world of words will be affected by the loss of those two letters. A fun learning lesson any child will enjoy. A lovely children's educational tale. Minky has a box of letters.

    My children love these little books. They thoroughly enjoy each and every story, as if they are all unique and individual without any cause for similarity among them. Even though sometimes, they might seem tedious and repetitive to me as a parent, I do enjoy being able to read short-stories to my children that are clean and respective.

Now nobody can say ‘please’ because it has turned into ‘lease.’ The police station and the post office can’t function and the queen must go into hiding! What did I like? This is one of the funniest that Gita has written and maybe the best for children to learn from. These two letters are so important in our language that I hope every child learns this lesson. Again, she has made her book a learning curve for children to have fun with. I know my granddaughter and I laughed all the way through. What are you going to like? Our children are the most important thing in the whole world to us and I know that I want my children to be prepared for life. Gita’s book can do that for you with so much fun that the child will not even realize that they are learning. She includes one or two things in every book that I have read and I for one have enjoyed all of them. If our kids get a step up before they hit the classrooms then they will have it so much easier. My children and grandkids always played word games with me and my last granddaughter just graduated from College with an excellent knowledge of the English language. She told me that our games and the books that we read together gave her the love of English and all its complexities. Children nowadays don’t have the desire to accelerate themselves, we need to help them be prepared for the future. These books can help you along with all of that and have fun too. I received this from the author for an honest review with no other compensation.

    This is an amazingly cute picture book from an amazingly talented author/illustrator duo. The story follows Minki, a little girl who becomes frustrated when she can't tell P and Q apart, and the disaster which occurs when she throws them out of the window and they run away. The solution at the end is both charming and practical. Kids who are learning to read will be able to relate to Minki's struggle, and hopefully will learn that persistence is worth it when it comes to reading.

I think kids will adore this book, even if they're confident readers already. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    http://kachildrensbookreviews.blogspo... We received this book to give an honest review. Young kids who are learning their letters do get certain letters mixed up. In this story Minki gets p and q mixed up and this makes her mad. So when she throws the two letters out they run to the Word Fairy and lets her know they won't go back. You may never know how many words use p and q until you start really thinking, and Minki learns that she needs those letters to complete words!

A and I had a blast with trying to say and come up with words that have the letters p and q either in them or start with the letters. She is at the age that she does get some letters backwards so it was neat for her to see that it just isn't her. Though we can practice our letters and learn them. The illustrations were great and went with the story being told.

    It took me a long time to learn to read and spell. Getting p, q, b and d sorted out was particularly difficult, so the title of this book intrigued me. As this story begins and Minki throws her dreaded p and q letter blocks out the window, she has my sympathy. But now those letters go off on an adventure; young readers will love the bright illustrations and curious world of this book, whether or not they struggle with their letters.

Struggling readers just might get a sense of where the problem lies too. I love the advance of the furious words, mirror-drawn, awaiting their missing letters. I kind of wish the text of the story had used the same font, and some formatting issues distracted me. But I really enjoyed this story and its lesson. A well-told tale! Disclosure: I got it on a deal and I enjoyed it.

    A colourful, well-written book for young children to help them distinguish between p and q. The author puts a child's common problem into a fun, child appropriate story of what would happen if p and q ran away because kids are always getting them mixed up - of course, the big problem being so many other words wouldn't exist.

I can relate to the frustration that Minki feels in the story of “Which is p and Which is q?”. “Which is p and Which is q?” is the story of Minki, a little girl who has trouble telling the difference between the letters “p” and “q”. When Minki gets frustrated she tosses “p” and “q” out the window. Angry and hurt the letters march off to the Word Fairy and announce that they are never going back! What happens to the world when the letters “p” and “q” go missing? Will they ever return? The author, Gita Reddy, has created a wonderful story that will entertain little ones while teaching them valuable life lessons. I love how this story teaches my children how to use memory cues to remember things. The author gives us a great way to remember which is “p” and which is “q”. This is a skill that you can use to remember other things, like “s” and “z” or “b” and “d”. I volunteer quite often at my children’s school. Watching them learn new things is a joy, but often times they get frustrated. In the classroom they can’t just toss things out the window in frustration, the children need to find ways to work through their troubles. “Which is p and Which is q?” offers parents and teachers the opportunity to talk to children about how they deal with frustrations. Do we lash out in anger or do we try and find a creative way to solve our problems? When Minki reacts in anger and tosses “p” and “q” away in anger the results are disastrous. Take this time to talk about how our actions have consequences. The illustrations in the story are bright and colourful. They are eye-catching and perfect for reading to a group of children. I love the expressions on the faces of the characters, each expression helps tell the story. “Which is p and Which is q?” is an adorable story that makes learning fun. *Disclosure: I downloaded a free copy of “Which is p and Which is q?” from Amazon.

    This is a very sweet children's book, beautifully illustrated by Abira Das. My nieces and I enjoyed reading it (even though they are really a bit old for it!), and we would definitely recommend it for young children who are starting to learn to read and write.
